A wise friend reminded me that although the "old" normal is gone, a new one will take its place. Indeed, though I feel frozen in time, life is pushimg me forward - a little more each day.
Do I want to go there? No, I do not. I want to go back...
back to the comfortable, worn-into-each-others-grooves days.
Where we could finish each others sentences.
Where we would often say "I was just thinking the same thing!"
Where the house did not seem so empty and quiet.
Where the promise of a warm, sunny day felt good.
