DAY 7 – Daily Photo Challenge

Day 07 – A picture of your most treasured item.

This one is a no-brainer :D

This ring comes with a lot of history. My friend Tammy gave me this ring back in 2000 as a thank you gift for being her clinical preceptor during her midwifery program. I attended Tammy’s birth of her son Landon in 1997 and we have a lot of history together.

In 2004 I was attending Tammy’s sister Cindy in labor. As she was in the throes of transition, she grabs my hand and says, “is that my fucking ring?”. Um, I say, “no, Tammy gave me this ring years ago!” (mind you, we’re all like sisters) and she looks at Tammy and says, “you stole my ring AND gave it away?”… LOL. My reply was, “ya ain’t getting it back, now get this baby out”.

As you can see. Still have the stolen ring. Cindy went on to have an amazing birth 20 minutes later, a gorgeous boy named Brady. Every chance Cindy gets, if she sees MY ring in a pic on Facebook, she asks if it is her ring :D

I LOVE this family… I went on to be present when their little sister Rhonda gave birth to Stella 5 years ago… Blessed to serve this family, blessed to count them as sisters, blessed that Cindy didn’t make me give this ring back… I wear it every single day!
