    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    Congratulations and best wishes on this next phase. I'm certain you will enjoy the freedom.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I am so happy for you. I downsized out and pension off at the ripe old age of 53. So glad it happened, I didn't start quilting at that point. By now I have probably made a couple hundred quilts, many go to charitable groups.

    Hope to see you at the retreat the end of September.

    You are all so kind. Thank you!

    Since my stepfather's death in December, I've had to take over all my mother's finances. The time involved necessitated me retiring (and my boss completely understands and supports my decision, as she is my cousin). So my life is still not completely my own, as I will continue helping my mom. But I believe that my stress levels will decrease AND I'll have some time to sew EVERY DAY! I am so looking forward to this.
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    Happy retirement to you Toni. Enjoy every minute of it.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
