Well, haven't I heard this phrase all of my life? What does it mean? It means something changes in your life so significant that there is no returning to normal. What must develop then is a new normal. We are in the process of developing that new normal. Like so many of you out there (are going through with us, or before us, or will sometime after us), we have alot of 'firsts' to go through.
I have decided that I do not like change. And yet, change is inevitable. Nothing can be done to stop it. I do look forward to the days when it at least happens a little slower in much smaller doses.
