It seems like retirement from Shelby Senior Services was just yesterday and it was two years ago! People ask me about retirement and I usually say something like “when it starts I’ll let you know!”  After leaving Senior Services on Friday, I rejoined the George family the following Monday. Many are surprised to learn that I had never really left Glenn E. George and Son – in fact had continued co-facilitating the funeral home’s grief support group, Coffee and Comfort with my dear friend, Vickie Boling, throughout my tenure at Senior Services. I’ve learned that when the dear Lord decides your path, it’s useless to resist – He was determined I was to provide caring support to grieving people. Most of my life I was blessed to serve as Hospice Administrator in several wonderful hospice programs throughout Indiana and Illinois. Life is easier when you are following His chosen path. 

One thing I missed after retirement was an outlet for my “musings” and those thoughts are bubbling over!   At Senior Services I had a wonderful forum for those thoughts in the Horizons Newsletter and WSVX gave me time for a weekly “Sky’s the Limit!” radio show for “people 55 and better and those who care about them”.  Then, this new website comes along and the George Family is giving me space to “muse” – in today’s parlance, I guess it’s called a “blog”. 

This is the first “blog” and I’ll try to update weekly.  I’ll be writing about life as we age; finding  peace after loss that we have learned from our dear friends in the Coffee and Comfort group; and yes – the surprising comfort you might find in pre-arranging your own funeral! I’m also  passionate about aging gracefully and healthfully – so there will be a lot of that too. 

Let me know what you think – and I’m open to ideas and your own “musings”!   Dianna
