Bringing a New Meaning to Retirement

My daughter retired last week. She is 49. I am just blown away that she and her husband can do this. But funny things are happening to her already. Retirement can be written all over you face I suppose.

She sent me a text message this morning. It went like this:
Mom, it has happened to me...they offered to carry my groceries to the car this morning. I have never had that happen before. I think it was because I looked extra beautiful.
My response was:
I think you should go with that explanation dear. I love you!
Retirement at such a young age is truly wonderful. She is just hitting her stride and will start a new job next Monday. Life is good!



  1. Did your daughter retire from one job and start another? Funny explanation for an offer of help carrying groceries :)

  2. I LOVE that explanation for help carrying the groceries. I am 57 and (for the first time ever) a teenager working at our local A & W questioned if I could really carry such a heavy tray (2 coffees and 2 Egg McMuffins) to my table...seriously! Next time I will definitely go with your daughter's rationale! Thanks for sharing.

  3. They keep offering to take our groceries out to the car too (we are 56 and 54 respectively). I keep saying "I'll see you in ten years." Sometimes they get it, often they don't. Congrats to your daughter!

    1. My reply usually is "thank you very much but I think I can get it. "


Leave your thoughts...I am interested.
