An Eventful Day In My Life


We have all heard, or read this saying before. When we graduated from High School or College,or when we got married, someone might have said this saying  too us.

All those eventful days were a long time ago for me, but today for my sweet hubby, and me it applies again!

As of today, my sweet hubby is officially retired!! He has worked hard for our family and has been a wonderful provider. Not just monetarily, but he is our, “ROCK.”

He has conducted his life with honor in all aspects, and he is a man to be honored, and respected.
He is a person I wish I could be more like.

I feel truly blessed to be able  to enter this next chapter in our lives together.

We have already had an amazing journey, not always perfect, not without heartache, or sacrifice at times, but always filled with love and devotion to each other, and our family.

Gone are the days of schedules and alarm clocks…….

Kathysue and her sweet Hubby will be doing more of this, whenever possible…………

We will Be:

 “Enjoying The Process!”
As Much As Possible

Congratulations! We have enjoyed retirement for a few years. We find we are busier than ever and wonder where we found time to do all we did while Jim was still working.

You are certainly going to enjoy this particular process.:-)

Hi Kathysue

Congratulations to Doug and wishing him a joyful next stage in his life.

When I told my Doctor that my husband was retiring, he looked at me with concern and said: "Remember you married him for better or worse, but not for lunch".

Enjoy your weekend Kathysue

Congratulations to your dear hubby, KathySue! I know you must be so excited. I hope you have a wonderful time and can travel a bit and enjoy every moment of these upcoming years.

My hubby took early retirement a few years ago but went back to school to be a pastor and then back to work. It was quite an adjustment but we made it. He will probably work about 3 or 4 more years. I quit in November of last year and have been so busy that it is crazy. xo Diana

Congratulations...may you enjoy many beautiful moments together...To me, when my hubby retires (has a long way to go)...I think my favorite part of the day would be in the mornings...him taking his time, planning the day...just enjoying the sunrise....and not having to rush to start a day of work...

Beautiful sentimental post!

Congratulations Kathysue!!! I am so happy for you both and kow you will make the most of your time together in the years to come!

Mine will retire probably in eight years to get back what we lost in this economy. He would have been retiring a lot sooner. For the last three weeks he was here all the time after his back surgery and I kind of got used to it, but he went back part time this week and I think full time next week, not sure.
Y'all enjoy your fun time together now. Nice not to set the clock.
