I blog about what muses me.

It makes a big difference....for me
It makes a big difference....for me

My wife “retired” just before the winter. Around that same time my work schedule, pandemic and all, picked up and I found a need for some assistance. I often could not get away to check my box at the post office, get to the bank or even during my afternoon, address some of the yard work. I cannot complain about being busy. My mantra remains to help others and make a difference. As we moved to spring and summer, I noticed Shelly taking on different tasks I used to squeeze into my day often when I returned from a meeting or other task, sweeping the front curb, and sidewalk. She even took up the tasks involved in making my outside office ready. Power-washing the side of our deck my outside office occupies and cleaning the white railings (They look really nice!). Next thing I know, I am working at my desk and she is sweeping up the yard, watering the plants, and last week even added a planted to the deck and planted some flowers. I really appreciate her efforts. I did pick up red mulch but my practice is to wait until Father’s Day passed to put it down (as the tree “droppings” pretty much cease by then); and in theory, things should ease up then (unless I take on a new project). I never expected the help; it certainly makes a difference for me.

    It sounds like retirement has worked out well for you and Shelly.

    Keeping busy is great. I think it keeps us young, at least in mind. Glad you have some extra help. It really does make a difference.

    So happy to see your partnership continue to thrive in retirement,
    though let’s be clear: There is nothing retiring about either of you
    making a difference as you support each other making your home and the world a better place. Cheers!

    I always say I never complain about being busy because the opposite is so much worse.

    My husband is my "office manage" and IT person. It's so nice to have a partnership in every sense of the word.
