Three beautiful things


Yesterday while my husband slept, I noticed the gold on his left hand. His wedding band. He has never taken it off. His wedding band and mine match. They have a beaded edge.

My friend has chosen to see beauty in the midst of a stressful day. She  wrote three things she was thankful for, to help remind her to look for the beauty in each day. At the end of her story she asked – What are your three beautiful things?

My three beautiful things are my wedding band, his wedding band, and the commitment they represent.

What are your three beautiful things?
