The "Right After"

Friday means Five Minute Fridays. So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from this week that match the words of this week.

Topic: After

It's spring here, yes it finally is hitting spring in this frigid tundra. The snow is melting and the air is musty in its wake. It's the after winter thaw that we look forward to.
But it's still not quite right yet to really be outside enjoying the day.
That seems common in the "right after" of any change in season. What do we do in the after?
We are no longer in the "right after" of the fires. There were plenty of times during that "right after" where it didn't feel right yet. Like spring that we could see the sun shining on the other side but the windows were still cold.
I feel like Steve and I are hitting a new season.
We have now passed into the two year mark, the real after.
We have to make sure it is not a time to slide into complacency, which is so easy to do in a marriage. Instead we have to keep growing and working towards the goals we set. We have to push open the windows and feel that it warm now.
