Returning To The New Normal

Tomorrow I return to work after a bereavement leave following my dad’s passing. It’s hard to believe he’s been gone for over a week. One week ago tomorrow we held his celebration of life service. A lot has happened in the past 10 days or so.

There is going to be a new normal where my dad isn’t there to be my rock and hero. He is still those things but he is not here in body. I used to think this one day at a time thing was kinda cliche but its not. Everyone who is grieving and mourning someone they really loved will have their moments for as long as they live. Tears will come when I least expect them to. Strong memories will hit me out of the blue.

As I get back to a regular routine a new part of it is remembering my dad.

So with all this being said my posts will return to what they were before my dad got sick and passed away. Of course I will remember my dad from time to time because that is the human thing to do.

Hello everyone, I am Tony Burgess and I am coming back to the normal, the new normal.
