Retirement advice when your children retire?

Now this is a hard one. My children are not only grown up but they are retiring.  Remember when all the talk was about how people were going to have to work FOREVER...well it turns out that was not a true rumor. It cannot be forever yet can it? Where did time go?

I know they don't feel like it is "already" but I do. This would be another nail in my coffin if it were not for the fact that I am so excited about them joining my husband and I in this part of life's journey. Now the hard part is how to NOT give them the benefit of my wisdom. Honestly, when you are as full of information as I am, it is hard not to share.

This very young looking group of friends are all
going to be my guinea pigs for retirement information
before long!
Our son-in-law retired today with a ceremony at the Washington County Sheriffs office so he is #1 in the line-up of retirees in our family. He is in law enforcement so he retires earlier than most people. But still...he is retired and his wife has his final check to prove it. I was there so I know it has officially happened.

I will put this in my emotional bank along with seeing the second generation leave the nest and seeing my three children graduate from college (debt free). Pride is the only word I can use to describe our feeling for our son-in-law.

Congratulations Doug! If you need any words of wisdom just call...I know I can help. :)

Have a wonderful day!
