The Ring and The Card

As I wrote about in a story called "In A Safe Spot", my husband used to toy with me about the whereabouts of his wedding ring.  For quite sometime, the ring no longer fit on his finger. 

I found it not long after his passing.  It wasn't really that hard to find.  All I had to do was open up his closet and there is was, in a white box. 
I wear it everyday. 
I miss him so.

There was discussion about a lost birthday card, that he had all filled out and could not find.  It would have been the last card he actually signed -just for me.  I have not been looking for the card, although I was recently sent a box of chocolates. Well, all really good chocolates go, not in the kitchen, but in a little cubby, behind where my hubby sleeps. 
That way the kids do not eat it all ;) 
So, I went to the little cubby to place the box of chocolates and what do I see in the corner?  A soft gray envelope, just as he described it, slid into the corner.  I pulled the envelope out and without opening it, held it to my heart.  I knew I had found his lost birthday card to me.  You might think I am silly, but of course, I cried a bit.... and then put the card back where it was found. 
Unopened and unread. 
I really miss him.


  1. Oh heart breaks for you. I remember your post about the ring and wondered where you would find it. Sending you hugs and praying for you all.

  2. So touching and sweet. My guess is that next birthday, you may find great peace in reading the card too. Such a wonderful treasure!
