It's different.

I don't wear jewelry except for my wedding ring which I wear on the wrong finger of the wrong hand.

Until now.

Soon I will have a little silver cross that I will wear around my neck.

It looks like this.

Now I know this may not be very exciting but the cross comes from the Batesville Cremation Catalog. I believe they purchase them from the Funeral and Cremation Emporium.

If you are trying to figure out why I am buying something from Batesville then just read this previous post.

These are the features as stated on their web site:

-Discover an elegant way to hold loved ones close
-Sleek designs offer a form of expression that is both fashionable and loying. (This is not my type-o)
-A fresh twist on traditional style touches the heart and pleases the eye.

I don't know if I am buying their sales pitch at all but before 2 days ago I did not know these things existed and my wife was very shocked that I wanted it after she suggested it.

Here is what I told her, no matter how much we talk, I will never know what she was going thru. Weeks of ultrasounds, and heart beats, growth measurements, and movements. Prenatals, bleeding, cramping. I watched it all. But as close as I was I was still a step away. She doesn't know how amazing she was and is thru the whole situation. Not jus with me but with our kids and with herself.

I want this to remind me of the person I sleep with every night. I want this to remind me of the person I wake up with everyday. I am willing to admit that sometimes I forget how great she is. I hope this helps.

Do you hold classes for men?
I'm sitting here, speechless, and that doesn't happen too often, I can tell you.
