Charlie and I had the baby, and for the first time it was nice outside so we could take him for a walk. It's been years since I've pushed a stroller, I won't say how long but both my kids are around thirty.
We stopped at a wonderful garage sale going on around the block. It was hosted by a friendly smiling women that is moving and needing to downsize.
It's so nice for us to meet and talk to other retired adults that are making decisions about their lifestyle. You would be surprised at the amount of material you have to let go of to be in a position to snowbird for the winters.
This lady had the most amazing attitude about her past life as a homemaker and was now moving on to a new life as a single women, and not wanting the responsibility of a huge home and empty nest.
She is a great example of someone that had invested a good portion of her life to her children, saw them grown and independent, and now is ready to go live the rest of her life exploring her personal interests.
She even shared some of her rhubarb with me, she had a patch that I could only dream of having.
You never know how life is going to go, but sharing your personal story with random people can bless someone and you may never know it. She blessed me by showing a healthy attitude about growing older and knowing your children have lives of their own and, it's a good thing.
Lunch by the lake.
