Letting Go

I have come to a time in my life when I feel it only right and proper to let go of some past hurts.
Even though some of these hurts are still simmering in the background, with a grandchild imminently due I feel it is the right time to close some doors firmly.
Winters End Ramblings contains many clues to those hurts and so I have decided to end this blog in favour of a new place for my wittering.
The new title is to be LittleWinterWays.blogspot.com
For far too much of my adult life I have been controlled by someone, or at least it feels that way.
We are now much freer from their clutch and I need to enjoy what remains of my time here on this Earth leaving behind the broken promises and shattered dreams.
Hopefully our grandchild will launch a new chapter in our lives and we will be able to enjoy them in a way we were never truly free to enjoy our own children's young lives.
The old title Winters End Ramblings referred to a place that in our imagination was to be where we would spend out our days. Lovely though the Cottage is it is not Winters End.
It is however Little Winter, and is full of love and cosiness.
We no longer imagine being at Winters End and I want to keep my love for this Cottage alive and real.
I do hope you will feel inclined to follow me to this exciting new space.
We all have hopes, we all have dreams, we all have reality.
My reality is a husband and three wonderful children. A jumbo sized doggie. A reasonable job. A cosy Cottage to live in.
See you on the other side!
Blessings J. x

  4. closing a door on something or someone is an odd juxtaposition of easy and extremely hard - hope it goes well especially as your reality looks to be rather precious. Have captured your new link and will follow you there.
