That's What Friends Are For

This past Monday my former co-workers honored me with a retirement celebration. It was so great seeing everyone again! They had 2 collages on display that showed memorable pictures of me & people from my years of teaching. In addition, my family & I were treated to a delicious meal. A beautiful cake was the dessert we all enjoyed. I was presented with a potted plant & a generous gift certificate to one of my favorite places to shop, Old Time Pottery.

Today I met another former co-worker for brunch at Mimi's Cafe. She is also retired from teaching. We had a relaxing visit while we enjoyed our yummy food. She presented me with an adorable picture frame for my new grandbaby who will be arriving in March.

Thanks friends & family for helping me celebrate! You mean the world to me!

Until next time, take care!

Hi Carol! I'm so glad you came to visit me. You will love blogging. It's so much for but addictive. My husband says that any time the house gets quiet he knows where I am.

I will add you to my list.
