new order.....you know, making sure all the blouses are in color and sleeve length order, all can's and bottles have labels facing forward, shoe boxes stacked according to heal size,and the never ending ....getting rid of yet more stuff!
My yard is like a blank canvas to these eyes. With exception to the plants that are coming back from last year, I know there are older plants that have lived their lives, leaving behind pots of soil that are shouting "Vacancy" ! I can't wait to make my first trip of the season to "Green Thumb" and walk up and down the isles looking at all the new flowers for this years enjoyment. I totally enjoy my time at the nursery , so much so I find myself frequently wishing a had a larger yard to house it all...Yet thankful for the small yard when it comes to upkeep :-)
This spring has got me itching to go back to work (did I just say that?). There is so much about retirement I love (sleep) yet I am wanting to find more purpose than that of my home and yard. Money too is an issue, to live how we want to live requires money and we don't want to live off our retirement money just yet. Funny, it's like we pay for car insurance every month but when we have reason to file a claim it's....let's just pay out of pocket so our insurance rate doesn't go up? Hard to determine the time for the retirement funds, timing it just right so we have the assurance it will last till the end.
I'm hoping to find something I love to do and then it won't be work at all! But what is that? And will employers want me at
Wanting a new beginning, but one with purpose. I want to feel I am doing something that is appreciated by whomever. Cliche' maybe, but I want to make a difference in the lives of other people, not just appreciated by a boss (though that's important). A difference, rather it be in word or deed for someone that needs it! I'm not trained in a paid for education sense, so I don't have a degree to love others and to help them, but I have a heart for them. I don't have a degree that say's I can speak kind words or even share some of the wisdom I have gathered in my travels to this time in my life. Maybe I can share something that someone else is needing to hear. So just what are my qualifications and experience? Life.
Looking for a new start at a new stage in my life...often frustrated as to what it might be....at which time I am reminded to trust that God has a bigger plan for my life than I can even imagine.
Something...new defined ~
Not previously experienced or encountered; novel or unfamiliar
Different from the former or the old
Changed for the better; rejuvenated
New is indeed in the air, new order, new beginnings, new....fresh! This is what echos from my heart today.....
