Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Life

It finally arrived....retirement!  My final days were mixed with laughter and tears.  I am going to miss the day-to-day interaction with my friends that I was fortunate to work with for so many years.  I won't name them, they know who they are!  Everyone was so kind and they made me feel respected and that I will be missed, but I'm also mature enough to realize that the space I left will be filled and life goes on!

I was gifted with some AWESOME parting gifts, posters, cards, unexpected visitors and lots of hugs! Here's a link to the blog post on the quilt that my friend, Shari, sweated over (literally) to make my final day spectacular!   I've included the slideshow I sent as my "farewell" which includes the Anna Kendrick version of the Cups song or "You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone"!


  1. The slideshow is FANTASTIC! How nice to have all of those wonderful photos to remember your friends and coworkers. I'm wishing you the very best for a future filled with happiness! Sweet hugs, Diane

  2. Today was very strange, but I looked down and saw that big box of paper it made me smile.
