    Hi Susan!
    I , too am in a semi-retirement position but different than yours. I have been a stay at home mom the past thirty-four years (YIKES) raising five children. At one time I had five kids in five schools, Elder, Seton, Saint Xavier, Saint Antoninus and Saint John’s preschool. My days were completely filled as you can imagine! Now my oldest three are married and have given me four beautiful grandchildren. The youngest two are in college, a senior at Miami and a sophomore in UC’s DAAP program.
    Though Kelsey chose to stay at home rather than dorm, she is in and out so much I almost wish she wasn’t here!
    I understand what you mean about school starting and you not being a part of it. I had kids in grade school for 19 years straight and its definitely an odd feeling when its over! I fill my days now with spending time with my grandkids and visiting Mom at her nursing home. There are definitely times I wish I could relive the crazy days though. The house is so quiet and clean! Well, kind of clean! I have also been trying to start volunteering at Little Sisters of the Poor which is where my mom now lives. Anyway, I really just wanted to say I so enjoy reading your blog and frankly I’m a little jealous I didn’t think of starting a blog too! Keep up the good work!

    WOW! I never added up all those years…that is a long string of opening days!!

    Precious and sweet that availability to others. That is truly a gift. I know you in that you will be intentional about choosing that best yes and allow the Lord to use you to bless others. Most every morning the Lord whispers into my ear, “Give yourself away today”. I’m not as intentional about it as I should be, but he’s helping me get my act together. LOL!! I love you, friend and am so hoping we will be able to give ourselves the gift of finally being able to get together. <3
