My husband dropped me off at PLJ weary, ragged and low-spirited, having not recovered postpartum. He was hoping I would recover some of my health with much needed sleep and healthy eating; But I didn’t want to be there, feeling low and anxious about being away from my baby. So my expectations were nonexistent. However, I am glad my dear husband was smart and caring enough to put me in time out. I got the rest and good eating as intended. The menu was thoughtful and healthful. Everything from ingredients to timing was perfect. Jill and Kathy work together like a dream team: solid, knowledgable, prepared, and, most importantly, flexible and accommodating for a group of guests with varied goals and abilities. They made cooking and eating healthy fun and easy. We all contributed and participated as much or as little as we wanted. I have never been so impressed by any level of caring and professionalism until now. I was safe and in good hands, grateful I wasn’t in a hospital, strapped to machines and getting pressured to take unsafe meds. PLJ is one the few environments a body can properly rest and heal in. Not only did my aching body find rest, but my spirits lifted. Under Jill’s and Kathy’s firm and understanding encouragement, I found a group of women to laugh and cry with. They understood, listened, shared and supported without reserve and judgement. I have had people try to help and tell me they weren’t judging (except they were). These women never bothered saying they weren’t judging because the thought didn’t even cross anyone’s mind. They have met their inner demons and have had to face them down. And they were wise enough to know the fight never stops. My only goal had been to focus on sleeping as much as possible to let my body finally start healing. But I went away feeling as if my thirsty soul had gotten a much needed drink. Because of PLJ, I have learned a much deeper level of gratitude, peace, support, and friendship (no matter how brief). Thank you, Jill, Kathy and all the new friends I made.
