“A moment to reflect: I realized how lucky I am and how much healthier this was for me. I was among friends, staying active, and keeping up with the world. Yes, this was a good retirement life. Better than being alone on Neal Street, albeit the phone would ring and cards would be displayed on the table. Oh, my friends still call but now they may have to leave messages on my phone! This, yes, this was much better. Not just for me, but for my family’s peace of mind also.

So I take a moment, reflect, give thanks and know how lucky I truly am to be here.” ~ Arlene
