Today I had a chat with an old friend. I've known her for over 15 years. We've shared some good times and some bad times. I met her when I was working for an insurance company. She was a vice president and I an administrative assistant, but something clicked and we've remained friends.
We also have something else in common - our birthday although there are many years separating us. We're going to meet next week and celebrate. I can fill her in on the wonderful life of being retired and she remind me about the joys of raising two teenagers.
I don't think about the number, I just congratulate myself on making it another year.
