I agree wholeheartedly with TS here - I just hit a year and it was learning experience like few I can even compare.
We do learn how to at first "get through" and then enjoy celebratory events as they arise. Weddings, holiday's etc I first feared by have now come to relish - soberly!
It would seems the first 12 - 24 months is a huge learning curve and then maybe life on life's terms or more emotional consistency and thought are pervasive. We'll see!!1
Nice thread, thanks for the post!
By grace, we are all here
