10 years. The people in the retirement village are all very friendly and I've made quite a few friends already. I really enjoy living here and it is not as lonely as it used to be in our own home. I even sang a few for them at our Spring lunch and enjoyed it a lot. Will be singing again at the Christmas dinner. Again, thanks a lot to each and everyone of you for praying and thinking of me. I appreciate it a lot. Man, this is the most wonderful family to belong to. Hugs and kisses to each and everyone of you. Annatjie

How wonderful to hear someone with good news! Many folks hate retirement places and I know they try to have activities to keep folks busy and entertained. It's great you are jumping in and having some fun. It is what you make it. What a relief to be relaxed after being stressed for such a long time.
God bless you,
Meri

This sounds great. It may not be home but it sounds like the next best thing! After all is said and done, life is what you make it. You have a great attitude and a wonderful outlook on the situation. You can be happy in a new place if you have a good attitude about everything. It sure sounds like you have found a new family of friends.I am very glad to hear you sound so happy. Now.. if it were me and I was trying to sing in public, most likely they would run me out of the building!!!!!!!!! heehee I can do alot of things, even some of them very well but my son even hates to sit next to me in Church when the music starts. I have learned to sing very very very quietly.
Good luck to you and keep a good attitude and you have won alot of friends and a nice new home.
