In our younger days many of us dreamed about retirement and how it would be for us. I know I thought about how mine would be for sure. Although some things are happening like I dreamed they would, so many other things are just total surprises to me. Some of these surprises are not ones I like either but that's life and I'm going to have to deal with them whether I like these surprises or not. Are you living your retirement dreams or have you had some surprises come forth that are causing you to adjust your dreams some or even have to change them completely? One of the positives I've been able to keep during retirement is staying close with my Family. This is something I just could not imagine living without so I'm glad this dream has stayed true. It is harder to find times to nurture that closeness now that most of my siblings live in different states but somehow we all do our best to make these times happen and I'm thankful for this. I saw myself doing a lot more traveling in retirement with my husband, but now that he is losing his vision it looks like this dream is going to have to be adjusted. My Honey's vision loss is throwing a big wrench in our retirement plans in many areas actually, we just haven't had much time to really think about how much because we are just trying to adjust to the vision loss itself right now. More than anything else, this change is bringing change to all our retirement dreams.
