Mary Grams from Alberta lost her wedding ring more than a decade ago, and had accepted the fact that she would probably never see it again. Well, it turns out that wasn’t the case.
The ring turned up when her granddaughter was digging up carrots for dinner. It had been at the farm all these years.
The 84-year-old said she likely lost the ring as she was pulling a large weed from her farm in 2004, prompting a frantic search. “We looked high and low on our hands and knees … we couldn’t find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it,” she told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. After days of searching, she decided not to tell her husband. “I didn’t tell him, even, because I thought for sure he’d give me heck or something,” she said. “Then I finally went to the jeweller and bought a cheap ring. I only told my son, I didn’t tell nobody else.”
Well, now Grams has been reunited with the ring because her granddaughter brought over a freshly-picked carrot that had the ornate ring encircling it. Read the full story here and watch the video below.
