My grandmother's wedding ring

As I’ve expressed before, I was very close to my grandparents. When my grandpa passed away, my grandmother gave me her wedding ring. I’ve been wearing it ever since. Of course,  I have my own wedding ring, and I love it, but I choose to wear my grandmother’s as a symbol of love and perseverance. It’s a very simple and unassuming gold band, and most people would not even notice it; I notice it at least once a day. My grandparents went through some of the same struggles my husband and I have faced, and the fact they were able to work through it is an inspiration to me. They had 56 years together, and I can only hope that my husband and I can enjoy that much time with each other.
