My emotional pregnant hormones are in full swing the last few days! My poor family! I'm shaky...weepy...short-tempered. I debated whether I should even sit behind the computer keys....who knows what I'd type!?! I'm afraid of scaring any of my friends away...I might start screaming and crying and running around yelling, "Just give me some Krispie Kreme!!!!"
So to steer away from completely freaking anyone out, I think I'll try to put some polish on an article I started a few weeks ago. It's been sitting in my drafts, just waiting for a day when I was having a "melt-down".
This is a picture of me laying on our roof, looking at my sweet, perfect, simple wedding band. Notice the missing engagement ring? It is wiser to not wear anything flashy or expensive here. I laugh a little...because my engagement ring doesn't really fall into that category! But i'd hate to lose it...so it's sitting in a bank in Louisiana. Better safe then sorry.
If you had one word to describe your wedding ring...what would it be. I've thought hard about this. What would my word be?
Romance? Remember that tingly, butterfly flutter that just the sight of his face gave you?
Security? The feeling that he can solve any problem and make all right in your world.
Pride? He's all yours! No one elses. Remember the feelings that you'd have when you were first married, and you walked into a room holding his hand.
Happily-ever-after? White picket fence...cozy little home with shutters...and an apple tree? For us...it was a diesel pickup truck with my 22 foot suitcase hitched on the bumper.
Change? Good bye stable old Missouri...hello........?..world.
Power? Don't try to pretend that you don't have power over your hubby! Not the "chase him around the kitchen table with a rolling pin" kind of power. I'm talking about the power you have over the words you say. Or, I've known woman who have changed their husbands whole lives by one mistake/decision she's made.
I really can't put my finger on the right word. I guess I'm just happy that I've got HIS ring on MY finger.
If you had one word what would it be?
