Starting The Day Right

Clean crisp sheets, a down comforter, rain drizzling against the window and I have no place I need to be but toasty warm in bed. For years there was always a reason I had to get out of bed.  Now that I am retired and my children are grown, I have given up the alarm clock and most mornings I spend a few moments just enjoying the comfort of a warm bed before starting my day.  There's no rush.  I can get up or not.  For the first time since childhood, I am fully rested.  Retirement is a gift I get to open every day. 

Life is good and I am grateful.
