redundancy... the state of being no longer useful
"No one is useless in this world
Who lightens the burdens of it
For anyone else..."
- Charles Dickens
I had saved this saying that I saw somewhere and came across it recently when going through my word documents. It says exactly what I feel... in another person's words.
So even though many of us "retired oldsters" are no longer contributing to the working world, we do have our uses.
*We can offer moral and physical support to family, friends, and others in need (including our own and neighborhood cats)
*We can lend our ears to those who have something to say
*and our voice to those who want to listen
*We can lend our arms to our grandchildren (in hugs)
*our vehicle to our kids
*our time to our community
*We can keep in touch with old friends
*and make new ones through outside activities
ps: (a personal update) Thank all of you who commented on my last post and recommended that I check in with a doctor after my little scare. I did just that today and apparently the EKG showed some abnormality (I still say probably nothing), but they are sending me to a cardiologist to check it out.
