Lost ring – Dauphin Island, AL
I got a text from Luke saying that his friend Delilah had lost a ring at the beach on Dauphin Island while visiting for the day. He couldn’t give me a lot of detail, so he had Delilah text me. She had taken off the ring and put it on her chair before going into the water, but it somehow got moved. She didn’t even realize it was missing until later that night. Fortunately for both of us, she was able to send me a picture of the exact location where their chairs had been set up. After waiting for a passing thunderstorm to end, I set it out to find it. Within 15 minutes it was in my beach scoop. I gave Delilah, who was already headed back home to Missouri, a call as soon as I was back in my car and we both shed a few happy tears. It was just a simple sterling silver claddagh ring – not monetarily worth much. What I didn’t know until after I had recovered it, was that it had belonged to her great grandmother and had been passed down to each first born daughter on their 16th birthday. I’m happy to say that, hopefully, it can continue to be passed down to the next first born daughter ! As always – reward refused because karma and seeing happy smiles is always the best reward !
