Divorce is hard. Very hard. And, when children are involved and holidays come up, divorce truly shows its many ugly colors, bold and brightly. When I don’t have my children, it’s really hard on me, especially during the holidays. Those are the times when reality sets in and life seems so unfair, especially when the choices made that broke up a family, were not my choices and completely out of my control.
However, I’ve learned that through difficulties, there are silver linings. Not only do I have a fabulous support system, I am with a wonderful man who walked in to my life unexpectedly and started picking up my broken pieces. He’s been there through my hardest times and continues to make my life more complete each and every day. He’s not only a shining light in my life, but he’s been one in my children’s life, as well. That in itself is the best gift someone could give me.
With all that said, I received the sweetest and most beautiful Vera Wang bow ring from him this weekend. For me, the ring was love at first sight with its dainty, feminine and unique look. And, when I looked in to the meaning of the “bow”, I loved it even more. As a symbol of strength, unity, beauty, loyalty and love, it truly was the perfect gift for me. It’s definitely more than just a ring of bling.
