For twenty years Sundays have been family day for us. Because we both work out of the home and homeschool we see a LOT of each other.

I have spent a great deal of this past week "settling in" to what appears to be a major shift of one sort or another. It honestly hit so hard and fast that it took me a few days to process it. It isn't like the recession where it spent months and months settling in. It was more like a tornado tha...
