I have accepted that I am not going to find it in the short term, if ever; so need to let it go and move on. I still feel a sense of sadness that something I have treasured for so long has gone missing, but I still have so much to be thankful for.
The first and most important thing is my husband. Twenty-two years ago tomorrow, Ivan and I exchanged wedding vows and became husband and wife.
Whatever, replaces my wedding ring is going to be a symbol of both our past and the new future that we have together. I have this wonderful feeling that we are on the verge of a new beginning. so many changes are on the horizon, children growing up, my studies, our lives together. So as I faced life 22 years ago as a very young bride, I can now face life as a 'mature-age' woman still in love with an amazing man.
|This is Me, wearing my wedding ring, and ruby/diamond ring - that I still have!|
