For Retirees, Every Day is a Holiday

Remember when you were little and you wanted every day to be a holiday? We’re there!

If you are retired, you have a whole world of options. You can stay in your pajamas all day or go to a movie or volunteer somewhere.  For retirees, every day is a holiday.

The big question for me every day is — how do I really want to spend this valuable day? Do you wonder about that?  Our dad had a sign in the kitchen that read “today is the first day of the rest of my life”.   So true.

We are senior citizens. We are on the last leg of this journey to the earth. We need to get serious about the value of our time.  We say “every day is a holiday”, but do we act like we are celebrating life every day?

If this was your last week on earth, what would you do differently?
Who would you call? What would you write about?

and PS — I hope love and laughter is high on that list!
