Actually I love the job. The students are interesting and the work is challenging.
I just miss retirement.
chatting with my grandson on Skype
Hanging out with my husband on the boat
listening to the birds while sitting in the chair my husband made
watching the sun rise and set
walking with the dogs
having low blood pressure
talking to my mom
talking to my daughter at a regular time of the day
getting the housework done during the week
cooking a good meal
knowing what is going on in the world
Hugs for my birthday
being 30 and thinking I CAN do it all
What I am getting in return:
Life changing conversations with students
learning how to organize cooking for 30 (that mean 30 of THEM are cooking:>)
PRAYER with a friend daily
a different appreciation of my husband
It certainly is giving me a different look at retirement. I am SO glad I did not attempt to go overseas to teach again. I cannot imagine doing this alone. No way.
I get it God. Thanks for the preview!
