This Makes Me Happy...My Rings Fit Again!

Well...I finally did it. Flynn will be four years old in November. While I was pregnant with her, I took off my engagement and wedding rings for the obvious reason that they were fitting quite snug. And they never fit again. At all.  (Now mind you, I am fine with this fact. I know that this old body of mine has been blessed to nurture and give birth to four precious souls. I gladly except that trade off as part of the blessing.)

Anyway...the months passed and became years, and I never gave my rings a second thought. Around two years ago, I came across them in a drawer and tried to squeeze put them on. It was then I realized that I will never be that tiny twenty one year old again. So I thought about having them resized. But of course that would mean taking them to a jeweler all the way downtown, and you all know how I am about leaving my house. I did, however, put it on my list of things to get to someday.

Well, a few weeks ago, I finally did it. Steve and I went downtown and had the nice jeweler resize my rings. I picked them recently...and am so happy that they fit! I forgot how I loved wearing them. Not because I am all about bling, because come on, we all know I am way too simple for that. But because of what they symbolize...the love and the bond that Steve and I formed all those years ago. And as a result of that love...we have four wonderful souls to cherish forever. It may seem silly, but my newly sized rings make me happy! : )

  14. Oh, I lost my diamond once, actually it fell out right in front of me!! (so, yes, I saved the diamond, thank God) but I was without my ring for a few months---I hated it!! I felt like everywhere I went, people thought I was living with some man or something--isn't that dumb?

    SO I get how good it must feel to finally have it back!! Beautiful ring, beautiful marriage, beautiful couple!

  18. Finally! It’s about time you wore them again. Like you said, it’s not about the bling, but the love and the bond those rings symbolize – another tangible proof aside from those four souls you’ll cherish forever. Thanks for sharing your beautiful thoughts!
