Ramblings and a new template freebie

So is it wrong of me to want to sell my wedding rings? I mean they are just sitting in a little jewelery box doing nothing. I considered having my engagement ring reset and wearing it on my right hand but I don't think I could look at it without remembering. Unfortunately right now I'm looking at who he has become and not what he was. If I could see who he was then the memories would be different. Sorry if this is cryptic and not making much sense. The sad thing is I don't even want top dollar, just a fair amount. Honestly this is my way of recouping some of what I am owed and I'm sure deep down a way to get back at him :( I know not very nice of me is it?

OK, enough of that. Happy thoughts!! No wallowing in self pity and anger (although it does feel good to get it out, lol). Honestly I do have a lot to be happy about, I have a roof over my head, a working vehicle, a good job that most days I absolutely love, a fantastic son, healthy and loving parents, a brother I just adore and two of the cutest most sweetest nieces you could ever ask for. I have also just had my cancerversary, 5 years ago on Feb. 13 I got the official diagnosis and here I am with my risk rate going down each year **yippee**

On to the template. As you will see I am playing around with colours that I want to use when making my templates. I haven't quite found a combo that I want to stick with so you will see different ones I'm sure. You can click on the image to download or click below. :)

I am not able to give up some old rings that were given to me by younger boyfriends I must admit. But if you feel like you can, instead of selling the rings themselves you can give them in for a discount in a new piece of jewelry. I know that over here they give about 45$ per 0.03 oz of gold when you buy something new, that could be a good discount counting that wedding rings are from 1 oz up usually! Be sure it's what you want though, because you know one they are gone they are gone and you might regret a choice done in a very negative period. Sending you some positive vibes :)

First thank you for the template. Second, you're not being selfish or mean in selling your rings. I sold my ex's class ring when gold prices were so high because I really could use the money. I guess you could hold on to them to pass them on, but would they mean to the same?
