Five years ago I was embarking on my first day as a retiree. I do not feel as though it was that long ago; but it has been. Like so many things in life, they just pass us by and we never give them another thought. I will not do that! I will not take things for granted, nor will I dismiss all the many Blessings My God continues to bestow upon me. He is so good and His mercy is endless to those who believe.
