Approaching the Golden Years

If you have been following my blog for a while you probably know I am approaching my golden years. This is a polite way of announcing I will be signing up for medicare in August. The plus side of this transition into the golden years is my medical insurance will now cover almost all of my needs. I no longer have to pay the co-pays because I will have medicare and a secondary insurance to cover the expense. YEH FOR ME!!!

For most people approaching this new era in their life, they see it as a time to finally unwind from many years of being on a “treadmill”, do something you always wanted to do, sign up to do volunteer work or just be a couch potato if that is what you want to do.

For me I reinvented my life and I am just as busy as I always have been, maybe busier. For me, for the first time in my life, I am creating a career for myself. My life up to now has been dedicated to the care and well being of my children, especially Jason.

Before my children were born I was working at a great job, making decent money and I loved what I did. However, I now believe I never gave myself a chance to dig deep into my soul and find the creativity and inspiration I now have found. I was young and did not give it a thought because all I wanted at that time was to get married and have children.

I got married and had children. For some reason, G-D found strength, wisdom and mental fortitude I didn’t know existed in my soul; and he gave me Jason to nurture, protect, and advocate for until he took him away from me. I now understand G-D’s reasoning and now I know why I am creating a new life in my golden years. I am going to make the most of what time I have left and I am having the time of my life. Only good can come from my training all these years and I am going to make the most of it until it is time for me to leave this earth.

The premise of this blog post is the sadness I feel. In the last couple of weeks we lost two members of our NEHS 127 high school class mates. They were in the prime of their life, beginning the golden years like me. I mourn for their loss. I pray for their families to be strong and get through this difficult time.

It only makes me strive to make the most of each day I have on this earth because you will never know when it will be your last.

Virtual Hugs my friends,

Jude
