Yes, at last I feel I am on that road, although ‘my road’ is just a little country lane at the moment with life being lived in the slow lane.

Be it enough to say that all went well with the surgery and I’m very happy to be this side of it all now. What I didn’t anticipate was how debilitated it would leave me, with such low energy levels and little enthusiasm for life. Hence the absence from my blog for so long. However, as I was assured I would, I’m beginning to feel the sunshine on my face and see my garden as the beautiful place it is.

I would like to thank all of my blogging friends out there who took the time to leave their good wishes for me on my last posting way back in June, together with all who sent me get well cards, personal emails and not least, the wonderful and quite unexpected telephone calls I received from dear friends too. I certainly felt well supported with positive thoughts and prayers, for which I truly thank you.

Blessings to you all - Marion

I am so thrilled to see you in print again, dear Marion. Just one day at a time, or one step at a time down that country lane, and you'll eventually find the joy and enthusiasm in your life again. May God Bless you always.

Hello Marion this is my very first visit to your blog and I see many of those that I already love to visit here as well so I am truly in good company.

I see also you have had a rather hard time of it over the last weeks and like your firends I wish you a speedy return to your wellbeing.

Your garden must be a delight to you and help you on the road to a full recovery.

I look forward to visiting again from here in Australia.

best wishes to you
