There is no photo to add today. I don’t have one from this chapter in my life. This is all new.
I didn’t even do what I always do. I did not purchase one single item of new clothing for this new day. Not even a pair of shoes.
It’s a new start. I hope to work there for 3.5 years or up to 8.5 years. If the Dave Ramsey plan works as it promises, I will be able to retire at 65, in 3.5 years. Perhaps it will take me longer to get out of debt and in that case, I hope to be able to work until I am 70, 8.5 years. There are many things that could happen to change this, but I can move forward in the hope that there is a plan for my future and a realistic way to get there. All dependent upon what God’s will is for me, and that He continues to bless me with good health.
In any event, today I will take up residence in the office that I stepped into so sheepishly for a job interview 19 years ago. During that interview, I said to myself, “I want to retire from this job.” I had no idea where that path was going to take me, but I feel so happy to be fulfilling that young woman’s desire.
Say a prayer for me today? Thank you.
