It's JUST a ring, right?


Recently my wedding ring broke.  I mean "can't even wear til I get fixed" broken.  I am so sad.  Let me tell you why.

I know that the wedding ring is a symbol.  Wearing it or not wearing it doesn't make my any more or less married.  I'm still married.  The ring holds tremendous sentimental value to me.  Tim picked this ring out for me all by himself, without my prompting.  This is what he gave me when he desired he wanted us to be "us" for the rest of his life.  I can't imagine not ever having this ring. 

Now there are those that will say, "this is the perfect opportunity for you to get a new one!" The old is broken, so get a new one.  Easy fix, right?  Again, WRONG!  While I enjoy getting new jewelry, my wedding ring is not something I want to replace or "upgrade".  It's not the same for me.  There's something about having this ring from the beginning.  It's been through everything with me.  It's comforting to me to think that I have a piece of Tim with me each and every day.  Every second and every hour.   I'm very happy with the "old" one...once I get if fixed, of course.
