One of the challenges in life is that of properly handling change.

One of the enjoyable experiences in life is revisiting places that were dear to you in your childhood. Of course, such a venture is full of surprises, because of the changes that occur in any locale. In days past, communities within communities, formed due to their ethnic backgrounds, were common place in any large city. Today, if any such areas exist, they are more historic in nature and the landscape is quite different. Change upon change – old buildings have been razed and new ones erected, those wooden bridges that revolved when opening have been replaced by structures with fixed high spans, and houses, once the work of carpenters using hand tools, have been torn down and the roar of power equipment is heard as new homes are built. Such changes can leave a sense of emptiness and sadness in our hearts.
With changes come challenges and with challenges come opportunities. That change is inevitable is a reality in every day life. For many of us, we have seen dramatic changes in our life style caused by circumstances that have brought prosperity and/or adversity.
