You may know her as The Hopeful Herbalist.
She writes gorgeous poetry and prose, and posts lovely photos of life at her home in Scotland.
She’s also a blogger friend to me and many others. As an example, Jeni’s kind wishes and comforting verses helped bolster my hope and faith at a very shaky time.
Recently, Jeni has been going through a challenging time, alluded to here.
Jeni and Ian and your family: you are in our hearts and prayers.
If I were half as good a poet as you, Jeni, I’d write something wonderful — but as you know, I’m poetically challenged.
And as you might guess, Hamlin took these photos. I didn’t.
But I chose them for you. And I send you love.
Stay strong, my friend.
From my family, to you and yours, with hugs.
Grace and peace.

Wow! You guys made me cry, thank you so much for all the kind thoughts and prayers, virtual hugs and bouquets! WP family is pretty amazing. Thank you Cynthia and Hamlin for the lovely flowers. I haven’t been outside except to trek back to the hospital but sitting on the sofa watching the evening sunlight paint the sky in palest yellow and orange on a pale blue canvas. Still and serene.
There is a long journey ahead of us still but with dear friends I can be brave enough, thanks Jeni xx💐💐😊

Thank you Cynthia for sharing your care for a friend, and I am sending all good wishes to Jeni. And, as always, to you.
Thank you, dear Jeanne.
Cynthia .. lovely, Jeni is special indeed. But then so are you 😄
I have run into Jeni regularly on other people’s blogs, I think I’ve also read her own blog from time to time – when wordpress sends me an update.
Hugs, positive vibes and the whole malarky to her.
