Wedding Rings

I can finally talk about this

Last week I decided it was time to get rid of my wedding rings. It wasn't something I wanted to pass down to my dd for reasons I don't feel like explaining. What I didn't realize was how hard it would hit me. My dh is Irish so we had the Claddagh ring - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia this picture doesn't look like mine did but it explains the symbolism behind the ring. I think the poem that went with it said

With this crown
I give my loyalty
With these hands
I offer my service
With this heart
I give you mine
in love, in friendship, let us reign

Our wedding was also based on rings...funny we eloped and this wasn't planned but because I am so extremely sentimental it was perfect. The wedding certificate that hung on our wall until last year said

As these rings are linked together and are entwined around the cross, it is our prayer that our lives will be eternally bound together by love and that our Lord Jesus Christ will be the head of our home and the center of our lives.

Funny how things worked out so differently than I thought they would. I guess the only thing left is for the actually divorce to happen.

Oh my, I know that feeling all to well.
"I guess the only thing left is for the actually divorce to happen."
It doesn't make sense, I can't wrap my mind around it! I am thankful that you are healing and sorry that through healing there is pain! {{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}

It was a beautiful dream. I am sorry the reality didn't match up. Blessings.

I still have my ring in a file somewhere. I don't know what to do with it.
