New Beginnings

My garden and I have sprung to life once again! Hence a trip to a garden centre took place where I strolled through the Rose section and saw a Rose named 'New Beginnings'. A nice commemoration I think! And very apt!

It's been a long time since I felt this good! My stomach problems are drifting away and all tests seem to come back normal; I have lost a bit of weight, which pleases me and I have found a new friend.

For the first time in four years and seven months I feel as though I can move forward without looking back; plan things; do new things; meet new people; organise my career and start again.

Writing my blog along the way has been therapeutic, cathartic and enlightening... leading me forwards to this point. Thank you blog friends for making the sometimes unbearable journey with me... now I can begin a new Chapter of my life and will not speak again of death, bereavement and loss.

I may go back and buy that Rose!

That is really good news, Jenny.
I am so pleased to hear this and good luck for the future. Actually there are some very interesting names for roses - but my old time favourite is still "Peace".

JennyB said...

Thank you Bernard, and yes, the rose: 'Peace'is also one of my favourites and which I have in my garden... also very apt!

Puddock said...

Jenny - this is fantastic news!

I am so glad to hear that the physical stuff seems to be settling down...and what's this about a friend? A new male friend perhaps? If so, I am very happy for you, and jealous of you!

Spring hugs from Scotland (())

JennyB said...

Thank you Richard... especially for being there when I was at my very lowest point. I shall make contact with you soon.
