A Good Home, Blogger Friends

Flowers for Jeni and family

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.

  1. Thank you, dear Cynthia, for thoughtfully letting us know to pray for Jenni. I’ve been losing track of many of my favorite bloggers and blogs. ❤ Her site is always an oasis in nature.
    Blessings ~ Wendy

  2. A lovely and warm supportive post to Jeni and the photos are serene and beautiful. Friends are invaluable and so true of WP community. Hugs all round. ❤️

  3. 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💐💐😊

  4. 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.
