Well, I did it, last week I retired. A new chapter in my life begins. At the moment there is a little bit of a concern, leaving a secure job that took care of my financial needs and my health insurance. But I am sure this will pass. It's an adjustment, but we will make it.

damommy: Congratulations! I know you'll enjoy retirement. - June 23, 2019 at 5:28PM

WryWriter: Enjoy this new chapter! We retire from a job, not life. In fact, you may find you have more to do. LOL! - June 23, 2019 at 9:44PM

"The rose is a flower of love. The world has acclaimed it for centuries. Pink roses are for love hopeful and expectant. White roses are for love dead or forsaken, but the red roses, ah the red roses are for love triumphant."

My sincere thanks to all of you for your Prayers and well wishes...I appreciate every word.

I was so glad when only another cardiac stent was needed, but I developed Congestive heart Failure along with Pneumonia, and that caused me a really hard time, but I've been fighting this battle for a while, and although the older I get the harder it gets, I'm going to keep on fighting...So after three weeks in the hospital I was able to get home yesterday.

My breathing is better, and I have an oxygen tank near, and a portable tank, when I have to leave the house...The swelling in my legs is down, but it will take time to clear the lungs of the excess fluid, in the meantime, a nurse will visit to make sure of my progress.

Nothing is ever all bad, there's always something to keep us going, I can still read my Bible, knowing that I'm never going to be alone...and I can read the work of all of you...that's also a good thing...

Hugs to all of you...Victoria

jlsavell: Victoria,

I am so thankful to hear from you!
I knew you had to be very ill. I, as were many others, so worried about you. You are well loved here. Thank you for posting. I was afraid I was going to have to go to New York and make sure you were able to host our tea party!!

I am overjoyed to hear from you but deeply saddened by your struggle.

All my thoughts and prayers to you across the miles.

Looks like if I am still here next Northern Summer I have to shut down for three months. Us "Down Unders" need more time of promotion at this time of the year at no extra cost. We already pay more for our membership due to exchange rates.
