“In your photo this week, focus on the win, the victory — that moment of glory and pride you’ll remember forever…” —WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge
My moment of victory was years in the making. After 46 years in the trade I retired last year and entered the next phase of life, the one without a steady job. Back in 1968, apprentices spent a probation year before they were eligible to join the IBEW. I was excited to be a dues-paying member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers right from the start in 1969.
45 years later I felt victorious that I completed my career standing up, ready for whatever else life has in store for me.
