The bug has caught me. The love bug that is. It’s strange how months ago, husband and I were experiencing difficulties in our marriage and some weeks after, our relationship is back on track. Yes, it must be true love.
As in many other couples, our love is not perfect, so is our marriage. Not once separation threatened to ruin our happy family. Not once I thanked God He did not allow it to happen. I saw the sign nine (9) years ago that the love he presented me with is the one that would last forever. It’s like a precious stone covered by earthly elements, unpolished and pure. Together, we worked on it to shine and radiate its beauty. Beauty that our family will always appreciate and treasure.
For my birthday, my husband asked me what I wanted as a gift. My thoughts drifted to a ring I fancy but reserved my thoughts for our silver anniversary. He surely can’t afford that now. I told him I wanted a simple ring to replace my lost wedding ring.
Wrapped in my ring finger now is his gift made of special silver and engravings. It may look simple but not to me. The ring symbolizes a new hope for our marriage. That like my lost wedding ring, our love can sometimes get lost because of neglect, but like my new wedding ring, a love lost can be replaced and nurtured back with genuine desire for staying together and building a happier and stronger family. 🙂
