The other day I noticed that my wedding ring was gone. I'm not exactly sure how I lost my wedding ring but to be honest I'm surprised I kept it this long. I knew sooner or later that I would manage. I've notified security at work, searched the house and my truck but it hasn't turned up, and now I'm in a bit of trouble.
As an expectant father, this has me a bit worried. I'm really good at two things, losing stuff or breaking stuff....Hmm break the baby or lose the baby? Not great options. What if I lose the baby? Well let's see, I set him down near the produce section but then they announced that sale on beer....Seriously, if I can manage to lose a ring, that was on my finger, who’s to say I won’t lose a helpless baby?
My wife is a bit more sentimental about the whole thing. To her, the wedding band was a symbol of our union. It was the ring she gave to me when we said our vows and its a symbol of our love. I plan on replacing it, my finger feels naked without it. I keep rubbing where it used to sit. But still, it’s just a ring, and I’ve never been fond of jewelry. I love my wife with all my heart and cannot wait to start raising a baby boy with her; shouldn’t that be all that matters?
