All Creatures Great and Small — III

I work about one week a month.

For those who work full-time, it may seem I have it easy.

For those who are retired, there may be nothing to envy.

I work because it makes me feel good.

I feel as if I am still contributing, being useful.

I sponsor a Ukrainian couple who live with me.

They came in September 2023 and, as refugees, may stay up to 2 years.
