What firsts have you had lately or not so lately?

In the last 14 months I have had some biggie firsts as in new experiences.  My first grandchild was born.  My age hit a new decade, the one I always associated with being old.  Obviously, I was wrong about that.  I received my first contract on one of my novels, and now I’m experiencing all the firsts going through the publishing process.  Whew!  And this is my first blog.  Now I really know what writer’s block is.

Some first experiences cause merely a little blip while others can turn your world upside down.  They can, however, provide a learning opportunity.  I love reading about people who find ways to turn a bad situation into a much better one.  I think that has a lot to do with my passion for reading and writing romance novels.

So let me know what firsts have you had and how they affected you.  How did you deal with them?  What did you learn from them?
