I've loved this song for a few years now. It always brings me close to tears for some reason. It felt like my song this week, though.
You see, I haven't worn my wedding band for several months. It didn't mean much to me anymore. Though Sky still wore his, mine sat on a dresser for a while, and then was tucked away into the ring box as if I'd never worn it. I came to hate looking at it because of the pain of the past year, so one night, I took it off, and off it has stayed.
Since I moved back home with Sky, he insisted that we get new rings. This week, we did just that. I will always remember what stores we got them from. I will always remember how long it took to buy my engagement ring. I will even remember the stupid "Hey There, Delilah" that was playing in the background. I will remember that Amelia was fussy, that it was dark when we left the shops, and that Sky slid the wedding band onto my finger before we went to bed that night.
And though I am not wearing my engagement ring yet- I can't until he "proposes" again!- the thin, almost fragile looking band I now wear reminds me that we are back on the journey we started since the day we met nearly 2 years ago to this day. We cry, we laugh, we love, and we try.
And he gives me wedding rings.
And, for the record, I can't wait to show you the engagement ring we picked out together. It's not at all what I originally saw myself wanting, but it is seriously stunning. :)
