~ Retirement~ Weekly Photo Challenge – Victory ~

Most of my victories these days are little ones — progress made toward a valued goal.  Completing a thirty year career as a high school counselor (after ten years in business and graduate school) is the last “moment of glory” that stands out.  Creighton and I invited family, friends, colleagues and neighbors to a garden party at our home to celebrate.

As you can see from the photo (taken by my niece, Molly) I was feeling great wearing my queen-for-a-day tiara, and flanked by my sisters and Dad.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Victory.”

  1. Congratulations! 🙂
    I retired four years ago, after being a teacher for the multiply handicapped for 30 years… so I can relate to that sense of accomplishment. I sure continue to enjoy and relish retirement. Enjoy it and savour the honor of being there!

    This fall is the beginning of my fourth year, and I am loving every minute of it! Congrats to you too, and thanks for checking in.

    I’m with you Lindy – I resisted retirement until my husband said he’d move without me if I didn’t do it, so I did! 2 days after retiring I wondered why the heck I’d resisted in the first place!!! Enjoy it!

  4. Retirement is the best gig ever!

  5. Collecting a monthly benefit from a long career – not ‘tired. Busier than ever with volunteer work, my blog, wild birds, yoga, and fun. In enjoyed reading your posts, Lindy. Life is good for some of us.
