The weeks following homecoming come with challenges mainly because we have all experienced changes and growth through the time spent apart. In fact reintegration is the toughest part of the separation cycle!
This feels much like filling an empty house and starting over in many ways. We are finding a new normal within our family system. We have to get used to the changes that come with life after separation. This may come with actually settling into a new house and community.
In the midst of reintegration remember to stay positive and look for the bright side to the new routines. Yes everyone and everything has changed but you have lots of love to offer one another. That is always a beautiful thing!
