As the hours dwindle away from 2018… I reflect back to a exciting year for speckled hen.. I have been able to work with an exceptional group from Alderman company. They have taken my idea/ideas and ran with them… more is coming in 2019. I personally “retired” from my real job of 25 years .. neonatal nurse, to pursue a dream of roasting a great cup of joe. The sky is the limit… Speckled Hen met the goals I set back in September of this year after my retirement. I am stilling working on goals for 2019. Main goal to grow as company and continue to provide great coffee experiences … this will be a ongoing goal… Personally .. I don’t like the word resolution.. setting goal/resolutions is a great idea… I know I need to exercise more, eat better, read more, less screen time, more quality time,etc. But I decided to do it differently this year. I taking one day at a time… trying to treat each day as new years day … to stride to do better each day and if I fall short .. I can start afresh .. Lamentations 3: 22-23 NIV says “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness”. My faith tells me I can start new each morning…that is what I plan to do … grow my faith, excerise more, eat healthier, show more grace, mercy and kindness. and love and enjoy my family and friends..Speckled Hen and I personally have been blessed… as I say good bye to 2018, I say thanks for the memories. Looking forward to making new ones in 2019.
