Hey, It’s Ok

interiorsHey, it’s ok is a phrase that has been said around our house quite a bit the last couple of days and honestly, those are the best three words I could hear at this point. Have you ever lost your most prized possession? Or something that has the most sentimental value to you? Well, I have. Or I should say, I did a couple of days ago. As my sweet husband keeps telling me, ‘hey, it’s ok‘, which I appreciate more than he will ever know.

I hate that I am even writing this because it makes it even more real and honestly, this is something I never thought would happen to me. I lost my wedding band. Yes, the most special thing that I have and wear every single day and only take off when I shower. Somehow it just slipped off my finger and I have been so sad about it. I keep replaying the day and I literally do not have the slightest clue when it fell off.

I know it’s just a thing and everything can be replaced but I am just so sad that it is gone because of the sentimental value it has to me. It really was my most special thing and I loved that particular band because that was the band that he put on my finger during our wedding ceremony. It’s weird I know to be so sad about something so small and I know I will loose many more things along the way but I cannot tell you how distraught it has made me.

Even though he keepings telling me that it’s ok, I felt like I needed to share because I feel like we all need to be told that it’s ok sometimes. It’s odd but there is something very comforting about such a simple phrase because it’s so true. Regardless of what you are going through or maybe what has happened this week or the last, enjoy today because it’ll all be ok.

    oh no! i literally have nightmares about losing my engagement/wedding ring! but your hubs is right, it WILL be ok. it’s just a thing. and you still have HIM! and now you have an excuse to upgrade in a few years 😉 chin up! xo

  2. I’m so sorry that happened! 🙁

  3. I’m so sorry 🙁 I agree, sometimes you do need to hear that. Last week I lost everything on my computer… photos from back when I was in high school to now and every single thing in my iTunes. It’s a scary feeling but it’s all replaceable and sweet that Wade is being supportive! Who knows, it may even turn up 🙂

    I’m so sorry to hear about the band. Hopefully it will turn up somewhere and of course it’s ok if it doesn’t. This might be a weird correlation, but my 2 year old has rough things happen to him all the time and I have taught him the phrase “it happens!” whenever something happens that is out of his control. It’s ok to be sad, but we just gotta move on when things like that happen

    I’m so sorry that happened to you! My mom lost the diamond in her engagement ring, and I know that it’s sad even if it is just a “thing.” The good news is that you’ll never lose the memories or the love. Hoping your week gets better!

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your wedding band. I’m not sure if you’re religious, but we often pray to St. Anthony, Patron Saint of Lost People & Items, when things go missing. Many, many lost things, both big and small, have been found after praying to St. Anthony. You can even look up some of the specific prayers online. Good luck!

    Thanks for being real and encouraging us. Love your blog and this is my favorite post you’ve ever written. I would also be so upset! This bible verse came to mind, and even though it doesn’t apply directly to your situation, it’s great reminder of how great Jesus is and that he is the only thing that will last forever. I hope it encourages you!!

    For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭34‬ ESV)

    This is like the I Love Lucy episode where they’re building a BBQ pit and find outs her ring is gone and Ricky tells her everything is going to be okay and that he’ll buy her another ring, but she doesn’t want another one. It’s not something small, Amy. It’s a symbol of love and a super special day for you. I hope you’ll be able to find it. Probably not in the hamburger like Lucy did! 😛

    Hi Amy!

    I never leave comments on anything but this post hits so close to home for me! My engagement ring and wedding band look to be the exact same thing as yours. We got married 8.1.09. Two of the pave diamonds on my band were loose, and one on my engagement ring and I had just had our second baby so I wasn’t wearing them everyday bc my fingers swell for a few weeks after giving birth (?). My mother in law took them to the jeweler where they were purchased to be tightened up and a good cleaning. Well…. A month later when she was coming back up for a visit and was bringing them with her, she gets here and tells my husband she has lost them and they never made it to a jeweler. That was 2 years ago and I still get sad when I see posts of your rings! It does happen… And it is ok. My rings were engraved … Engagement said “my whole heart” and wedding said “my whole life”. I think part of me will always be sad about those rings and miss them…. But the new ones still have meaning bc I honestly know my husband loved me even more the day he gave me those.

    So sorry that you lost your ring. I know how it feels to lose something of sentimental value. It’s crazy how something material can change our lives and shift our moods, but it will be ok. Material things can be replaced- always.
