Naked Finger

I am really feeling sad tonight over what is happening in my life right now.  I haven't said much about it, but when my husband left me over 2 months ago, I took of my engagement ring/wedding band.  I wore my engagement ring for nearly 8 years and my wedding band for nearly 6.  I have been realizing the past few days how much I miss wearing them.  I miss what they represented to me - love, safety, strength, hope.  I am truly grieving the loss of my marriage.  

I decided I needed something to wear on my ring finger so I went through my jewelry box and found a ring I haven't thought about in ages - a beautiful garnet that my Aunt Linda gave to me many years ago.  This ring means a ton to me and I am so glad to have come across it; you see, my aunt passed away from cancer  nearly 2 years ago.  Now that I have it on my finger I feel so much better and warm.

  1. that's wonderful sweetie. and you KNOW plenty of folks love you and want the best for you. i know it's hard letting go of 8 years. my best advice is to forgive (for you NOT him!) and let it go. and focus on yourself and your kids. i know you're a strong capable woman and you're gonna be fine! but if you ever need to vent that's ok too. i have broad shoulders and BIG ears! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
