My step-dad sold the farm house and is moving into a retirement duplex. Although, I am extremely happy he will now have plenty of free time to enjoy himself, it is also very sad that my "other home" will be gone. This is the home my step-dad was raised in. His family moved into this house in 1936. well before he was even born. He and my mother remodeled the home and moved there in the mid 80's. Even though I was not raised in this house, it was the home where I spent all my holiday's as an adult, hung out with my family, returned to live for a short time in my early 20's, and it was the home I always knew would be there for me should I ever need it. In other words, it was and always will be a very special place to me.
My Journey "Home" begins tomorrow. Big Red (my pickup truck) and I will be making our 3rd trip across country together. My first time ever driving it alone. I invite you all to join me in this journey as I travel home to help sell off the contents of this house and say goodbye. There will be laughter and maybe a few tears along the way. Life is an adventure though, and I choose to embrace it!
