~A reminder for me to surrender to the journey and trust.
While most people are busy dashing from one holiday event to another, I find myself curled up in our “empty” nest decorated for two and thinking about the journey. This year had unexpected bends in the road. I wonder what 2014 will bring? It feels good to be still, enjoying our first Christmas tree at FTC headquarters and establishing new traditions for the two of us.
I am excited that Flown The Coop has settled into a nice routine of quality shows and feel blessed beyond measure with customers who have become friends this year!
Even though Jeff and I have “flown the coop”, we are grounded by our expanding family! We are having fun planning our daughter’s wedding in 2014 and getting to know our son’s girlfriend and her son.

I am determined to not allow the mountains Jeff and I had to climb this year wear me out. Cancer, a stolen trailer and other various disappointments slowed me down a little.
Cherishing the relationships in my life and enjoying rest in December will rejuvenate me.

There is no way to predict which way the road will bend in 2014, the uncertainty is both scary and thrilling. Life is a journey.
I’ve spent time researching trends, dreaming of projects to undertake and looking at what worked in 2013. When it comes down to it, I know this journey is best traveled simply pursuing what I love. I envision “Road Work Ahead” signs along the way. And that’s ok.
I love being the author of my job description and pursuing new ways to connect with junque and the lovers of junque. I love deep roots in family and strong friendships.
I hope to be known as a person surrendered to LIVE the journey given me, despite the unexpected bends in the road. I will reread this post mid year and see where I stand.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Hope your December is filled with the warmth of your relationships and traditions. I also hope that 2014 will be the beginning of an excellent adventure! Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. Fly free!
