The engagement ring represents eternal love and trust in the couple. However, some rings symbolize more than that, especially when they are passed down from generation to generation.
Katie Walton received an anniversary gift, a jewel that has been in her husband’s family for years and was about to lose it in the sea waves. Fortunately, a group of strangers helped her find it.
Her ring was lost in the waves
Katie received an engagement ring from her mother-in-law, who presented it to her on the occasion of their fifth wedding anniversary. The jewel seemed so beautiful that she did not remove it from her hand, until during a beach vacation, the sea snatched it from her fingers.
I screamed and cried. My friends and my family came running. Some began to dig trenches, hugged me, and cried with me. The ring had been in the family for years.
Unknown people came to my rescue. They put on goggles, got into the water, scrabbled in the sand, and tried to calm my nerves. That ring was really special, not only because of the time it had in my husband’s family but because of the emotional charge that was around it.
A superhero appeared to help her
After almost three hours of searching, Katie gave up, thanked all the strangers for their help, returned to the hotel, and stayed up all night, thinking about how to explain what had happened to her mother-in-law. What Katie didn’t know is that Tom, a 60-year-old man who likes to hunt for treasures, would contact her to help her.
We talked on the phone for a few minutes, we made a plan, and within minutes he was already looking on the beach.
Katie had already given up hope of getting that ring back, but Tom managed to find it in just a few minutes. She was deeply grateful, not only for the help but for the wonderful experience.
