It’s not all philosophical or deeply emotional.
Sometimes you just try not to lose ground. I have no idea why but, the visual I get is that of World War I trench warfare.
A lot of time is spent waiting.
Waiting to gather the resources
Waiting to gather morale.
Just so you can make that next big push forward. In today’s ratrace it seems that marriages are no different. Don’t get me wrong, I am not suggesting that marriage is war. I am merely suggesting that not everyday is a great leap forward for your relationship.
There seems to be pockets of chances, that if taken advantage of, can push your relationship to the next level. Unfortunately, those kinds of days are few and far between.
The conversations are not always deep.
The I love you’s not always sincere as they could be.
The kisses a little more hurried than they use to be.
So many other things seem to need your attention.
And you just check in. Quick conversation. How’s the day?
I know because I have done it before.
I tried to spice this one up. This check in was supposed to be about celebration. New beginnings.
Some firsts all around.
It just shows one how difficult and perhaps mundane married life can be sometimes. It’s not all fun, laughs, and hot sex.
Instead of advancing forward, you sometimes just try not to fall back. Keep the ground you have gained at all cost.
And that is simply what the check in is all about.
