Five Minute Friday ~ Normal

I’ve decided to join the FMF fun. I was given a word prompt, instructions to set a timer for 5 minutes, and just write. To check it out, go here. This week’s prompt word is Normal. And, go!

They keep talking about the “New Normal.” the press, the governors, comunity leaders, and now, just people. A LOT of people, who don’t seem to realize what the term “new normal” even means.

New normal is not a temporary thing. The first time I ever heard the term was when my best friend’s husband died. One day when I asked how she was handling things without him, she said she was learning to live with her “new normal.”

“New Normal” is not a temporary thing like our governor and the press would have us believe. The term itself is a permanent thing. Are we in a new normal? If so, I resist, my family resists, and will do so forever.

And, end!

As always, I would just love it if you would join me in all of “My Journeys Through Life.” Just go to the subscription box at the top of the blog and enter your email information. After that, you will always know when there is something new happening. I hope to see you here very soon! -)
