    I see what you mean about the front of the house and back of the house.
    Enjoy my interaction with guests when I perform a fix in a room.
    I know how I want things when I travel and try to keep to that standard.
    Why I have held on as long as I have.

    I also put the 'maybe' in my decisions.

    I retired some years back, and I think the idea of leaving a busy lifestyle for what seemed like unlimited empty days was what frightened me the most. My husband being the perfect picture of the strong silent Marine that he was, never mentioned any fears of retirement, but I noticed the lost look he carried after we shut our business down. At least I still had him, our son, and our small farm to care for daily, but Michael didn't seem to be able to see a future for himself.

    I wonder how much that had to do with his becoming ill. Michael was a man that never even had a headache, much less any kind sickness until he was 69, then in only three years he was gone.

    So many of us work toward having a financially sound retirement that we forgot to plan and make arrangements to make those days as fulfilling as our working careers.
