I received a call from Paul at his Northville, Michigan home requesting help to find his son Michael’s wedding ring. The ring was lost in the yard during a celebration following the wedding.
At first Paul attempted to find the ring himself. With the help of many of the guests they walked around looking for the jet black ring. They even used a rake to comb the grass. Not about to give up, Paul turned to the theringfinder.com web site and found my Wixom, MI listing.
It did not take long to find Michael’s lost ring. It turned up in a small pile of grass and leaves that had been raked up in the previous day’s search.
Paul told me about the wedding as I was packing up my gear. The priest had reflected in his sermon on the lifetime of challenges and rewards their relationship represented and offered the couple a small jar of salt. A grain of salt, small but important to good health, makes food taste better. He advised when difficult situations arise they should take them with a grain of salt, like the old idiom, remembering how small and temporary their difficulties are compared to their relationship. The very next day the couple took the priest’s advice and after reflecting on the little bottle of salt, put the search for the ring aside, and departed on their honeymoon.
I did not get to meet the newlyweds; but you can see Paul was delighted. The happy couple will return home to the good news that the ring was recovered.
