Found My Retirement
"Niche In Life"...
(Victoria, B. C. Canada)
My name is Maureen. I was a stay at home Mom until the youngest child left school,I found that I needed more from life, so went searching for work.
I found a rewarding job with a charitable organization where I remained for sixteen years, during this time my husband attended University to study History.
Two years later my job came to a close, I could never find work that brought me the same satisfaction, so stayed home and knitted, then what I had made was donated to a Native centre.
Friends from Victoria on Vancouver Island came to visit, and told us that there were places to rent for seniors, we put in an application, had an interview, three weeks later we'd been accepted, so packed up and moved to the Island.
After moving here, I needed something to do, I wasn't yet sixty, but we learned that we could both join a Senior Centre.
I've been a member for thirteen years, where I've made lots of friends, plus I volunteer my time there a couple of days a week.
I have now found my niche in life.
