I will be retired. I will wake up that day and not have to be anywhere.
I am relieved. I am terrified. I don’t know where the money will come from.
Today I will write a letter and give it to my boss. And then I can tell people I am leaving.
There will be 21 more work days after today. There is a lot to clean up in that length of time. I want everything tied into tidy packages with pretty bows.
I would have to say that I am numb. I really can’t comprehend that this is finally happening.
This morning I reflected that I started working there the day after Labor Day, September 6, 1994. My intention was to work for 20 years and retire at 62. My plan didn’t exactly go that way, but it’s pretty close. I put in 21 good years. Now it is time to move along….
Thank you God for your Grace in my life.
