    Lightbulb It's Official!

    Well, it's official... I am now considered a "senior citizen" according to the Social Security Administration. I think they're worse than AARP! lol They (AARP) hunt you down as soon as you near age 50, and then SS begins to hunt you down as you near age 62.

    Probably the best thing about it is we finally get the money we've been working like a slave for decades. Yet, they control how much and when you get it.

    Never thought I'd have to wait till my 60's to get married. Neither did my husband, although this is his second marriage, he thought after we didn't make it 30 years ago, he wouldn't marry again if he couldn't marry me. But God!

    Hubby's birthday was yesterday, and mine was Sunday. Our income will increase nicely, and he will receive a raise on his job soon. Mere words can't express my gratitude to God for His faithfulness.

    And even though we never thought we'd be on lock down in our homes, unable to celebrate our born days in the manner we'd like, we never felt bad or sad because having the joy of Christ in our hearts, having one another, and still able to have delicious, healthy meals, is a great blessing, we made the best of it and thoroughly enjoyed our Birthdays. All PRAISE & GLORY to the God of ALL Blessings!

    This just means we get to have two Birthdays next year!

    Happy (belated) Birthday, Sweetie!!!

    It's a wonder your "ears aren't burning," because I've been bragging on you to several of my 60-something (single) Girlfriends, and telling them about how you just got married last year - BUT - You waited patiently on the Lord to send the "right" man.

    I've been getting a lot of mail notifications and am thinking I may wait to file since the amount increases the longer you wait.

    Happy Birthdays Mr & Mrs Valiant!

    I retired and went ahead and filed for my Social Security payments at age 62, because I'd rather have a bird-in-the-hand, than wait for two in-the-bush (LOL)...

    Plus, the way things are going right now, we don't know what's down the road as far as this economy is concerned - If everything tanks, I can at least feel as though I got some of what I contributed for 42 years back from the system.
