I think I came up with this prompt when my son was shopping for a ring for his fiancee --- actually she was doing the shopping! Ironically I took a picture from the wedding of all three of my kids and their spouses hands in a circle showing their rings..but as I write this post I do not have access to the picture. :(
But as I sit at my desk writing, I want to talk about a different type of ring - you know the type - the circle of friends from work that do not let you inside the ring, or even on the edge. I started a new job a little over 2 months ago and I still feel like I'm sitting outside of the ring (not even looking in!) I find that I try to be friendly, but after a while you sort of think to yourself, "What's the point?" Perhaps this is not as good a fit as I originally thought - not that it means I am giving up - I am just keeping my options open at the moment.
And yet another ring that comes to mind is the swim ring you throw around a child when they are in the pool. You know the kind - the ones with bright patterns and shapes!
and then of course the ones that go around their arms so they think they are swimming!
And then my Favorite Ring - the sounds that go 'round and 'round in your head:
