When it comes to a woman’s worldly treasures, there’s hardly an item more prized than her wedding ring. Not only is it the symbol of her holy union to her husband, but it also tends to cost half a year’s salary… So it’s no surprise that losing it can create quite the cavernous pit in your stomach.
As a 10-year-old child, I found out that I had thrown my Mom’s wedding ring away when I was a toddler. I cried rivers upon realizing what I had done as an oblivious 2-year-old, apologizing profusely for my heinous act. My mom comforted me sweetly, saying “Oh honey, it’s okay, you were just trying to pick things up and be clean.”
Her reasoning helped a bit, but the idea of it still haunts me to this day.
But it is consoling to know that my mama certainly isn’t the only one who’s had her diamond tossed in the trash. According to a viral story sweeping the web, one New York City woman accidentally threw out her diamond ring—but the tale of its redemptive retrieval is almost TOO good to be real life.
