Congratulations!

Hi Jennifer,I am glad the move is over. Now you can look forward to new things--new friends,new experiences. From my own past experiences, I can tell you to watch out for the 'old patterns'(ways of thinking) that often follow us from city to city. But I have a feeling you know that already.
I am a firm believer in 'bibliotherapy': getting therapy from reading good books. You should see my libraby! I think you would enjoy a book by Dr. John Townsend called: Hiding From Love: How to change the withdrawal patterns that isolate and imprison you This book did a lot for me.
I love reading your story and following your progress. You have come sooooo far--and I know you will keep on moving in the right direction. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Linda
