Romy waits for spring

It feels like spring here today; the bulbs, the daffodils, the crocus, the delphinium, are beginning to poke their snouts above ground. It signals hope to me; we've survived another winter.
Sometimes, that's what recovery is like. We go through periods of great happiness then times of great difficulties: sorrow, regrets, losses and bad decisions. I always know today, although I didn't in those first few years, that things come to pass, they never come to stay. Just like winter, when I'm feeling defeated or depressed, spring is usually right around the corner if I can just hang on.
Until tomorrow, I hope that you have hope. It's really about the most important thing we can have, isn't it?

Geeze! I just keep hearing the things I need to hear! Last night, at our discussion meeting, the topic was hope!

Thanks again for a great post!

A therapist told me once that -there is not room in the same heart for hope and fear...I choose to live in hope today!

Oh and I can't believe your garden is starting to show already, ya gotta post some pics, OK? Our spring will probably not arrive 'til May!!!I can hardly wait to see the new 'babies' I planted last fall!

Sometimes all I ever do as a therapist is tell over your post. The hope thing, I tell people, is really not hope so much as knowledge that what goes up, must come down, and visa versa. But you say it better.
