Time Out for Wedding RingLessNess…

Ringless...

On Thanksgiving night, Shien realized that her rings were gone, her wedding band and her engagement ring.Β  At first, we thought she might find it at work the following Monday. No luck. She thinks she might have either taken them off when she was putting hand lotion on or she might have lost them while cooking, when she had to constantly put on and take off gloves while cooking. She couldn’t recall at all,Β  because of her lack of sleep due to schoolwork. This was her second wedding band and her engagement ring was from Tiffany. She said the first thing her co-workers said was that her husband must be SO mad. Nah… I just felt sad when she said she missed them. πŸ™

Diamonds AREN'T forever... πŸ˜‰

I just read this online article called, “What do Do if You Lose Your Wedding Ring,” It said, “If polled on what are people’s most treasured possessions, very high on the list would most certainly be their wedding rings. A symbol of love and commitment, wedding rings are often never removed and worn from the
moment the “I Do’s,” are said until death or divorce.” I never thought of them as a symbol of our marriage or love or what not. I always felt it was a symbol that the rest of society expects from us; so come time when I needed to get a ring ten years ago, I decided she deserved the “best.” So, I got her a ring from Tiffany. It had small rubies (which I think aren’t even PC anymore) and small diamonds on it. Shien was never into big stones. Lucky me! πŸ˜‰ In fact, when we do get a replacement ring, she said she wants it to be stoneless. I’m working on getting her a ring that can be worn as a necklace. Having a jeweler working on it. She (Marie-Lise) has made a few things for Shien already in the past few years, so let’s hope for the best. πŸ˜‰

If anything is to be a symbol of our love and commitment, I would say it’s Malachy! Rings can be replaced. He is priceless! πŸ™‚
