have you ever lost your ring? I'm proud to be married. it's a symbol that I'm taken ... not that I have a line out the door or anything! but also it's a symbol of our commitment and loyalty to each other, a symbol of our love and family, and it is a product of God's divine plan. when the ring isn't there, of course I know I'm still married, but seeing it throughout the day makes me think of those things. it's a reminder of how blessed I am. amen!
something else I'm losing these days ... my hair! Elliott is just about 3 months old already, so my body is coming back to normalcy. it was so nice to keep all my hair while I was pregnant; thick, full, and soft. now I'm finding hair everywhere - pretty much every room of my house to Elliott's diaper ... which reminds me of a nasty story I read in a parenting magazine. apparently a hair went unnoticed in her son's diaper. he was screaming in pain and when she went to investigate, she found a hair wrapped around "his goods" and it was cutting off his circulation. like when you wrap a rubber band or string around your finger; his poor little pee-pee was purple. she had to take him to the doctor, I think in the end all was well, but watch out for your hair shedding into your boys' diapers!
