Con’s Coffee Chat and a Verse

It’s taken several years of retirement

To let go and finally slow down.

This “stay at home” rule has caused changes.

That have helped turn my life around.

My volunteer jobs were worthwhile and good,

I enjoyed bookclubs and lunches with friends.

But staying home and meditating,

Helped me see what ‘s important in the end.

To see more of my family and grandkids,

If only across a small screen.

Will live in our memories much longer,

I don’t have to explain what that means.

I want my family to remember my love,

Not hours spent in outside endeavors.

I want to leave wisdom and humor to them,

They’re more important than all of the others.

I was a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist for 40 years with a side passion for writing--poems, journals, etc. I now write for a weekly newspaper and have published essays and stories. As a trained Stephen Minister, I have picked up a lot of knowledge about humans, especially myself. I hope my writings will help others. I am a mother to four and grandmother to nine. I hope to see you all on my blog. If I'm not there, I am probably reading!
