All relationships go through cycles just like the seasons of the year. In the beginning, the relationship is fresh and new (Spring). Then it starts to grow and flourish (Summer). Now, the relationship is mature. Some parts start to fade in color while other parts display their most brilliant colors (Fall). Finally, the relationship slips away either through a deliberate decision to end it or the unplanned loss of a spouse (Winter). For most people, the cycle will begin again. Unlike the seasons of the year, seasons of relationships are generally unpredictable. An entire relationship life cycle may last only a few weeks or it may last a lifetime. Ultimately, we all search for that one relationship that will last a lifetime.
Relationships…like the seasons of the year.
