With This Ring

"How many carats?"

someone once asked...
referring to my wedding ring

and I thought it was a rather odd question
(for someone to ask)

because...
well...

"Carats? Carrots are vegetables"

but

this ring?
these rings?


These rings are symbols of promise

covenant
commitment
connection

and it has been 18 years now "with this ring"


and throughout these 18 years

on my best days
and worst

I realize that

it hasn't mattered
how many carats were on the ring my hand holds

what's mattered Winston
is that you were the one

right there

holding it

I love you and Happy Anniversary!
