This is Jessie.
I came out of my first retirement in late 1997 after 5 years of sitting on a barstool. It was time to get back to work. I re-entered the same industry I had left in '93, just with a different company. I worked closely with Jessie. It turned out that we had worked with many of the same people in a number of countries, including in Holland, Senegal and Nigeria.
We're both retired now but continue to chat over coffee at irregular intervals. We had coffee together yesterday. Jessie's Mom died on Monday.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that Step 3 plays such a huge part in my conscious being - "Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him."
for a full and productive morning with my Mom, prepping her and taking her to a dentist appointment
for discussions with friends about spirituality and finding a higher power -- these are things I knew nothing about until I was 49 years old
that to get it, I have to give it
for my good friend of the past 10 years, Jessie, who lost his Mom on Monday after her long battle with ill-health
that I rarely feel my age; more like half of it, which makes me 26.6 years old
that tomorrow is HNT -- git yer pix ready!
What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?
