“I’ve lost my wedding ring,” Mummy replied. “I put it on the window sill when I was baking yesterday, and now I can’t find it. I’ve looked all over the house.”
“But why are you looking in the rubbish if it was on the window sill?”
When Mummy looked up Maria thought she looked sad. “I thought I might have knocked it on the floor and swept it up with the rubbish.” Mummy started to put the rubbish back in the bin. Maria knelt down to help.
That night, Maria heard crying from Mummy’s bedroom. She got out of bed and made her way to the other bedroom. Quietly opening the other bedroom door she peeped inside.
“Why are you crying Mummy?” she asked.
“Because I miss Daddy.”
Maria sat on the bed and took hold of Mummy’s hand. “I miss Daddy too, but he’s up in Heaven and he wouldn’t want you to be sad.”
“I know.” Mummy snuffled. “But he gave me that ring when we got married and it reminds me of him.”
“Never mind, Mummy. We can ask God to help us find it.”
At breakfast a few days later, whilst Mummy was making coffee, Maria called out, “Mummy, Mummy!”
“What is it, Maria?” Mummy asked.
Maria held up a sticky red lump
“It landed on my toast when I was putting jam on it,” Maria replied.
When Mummy washed off the jam under the tap, in her hand was a bright gold circle.
"I must have knocked it into the jar when I was making the Victoria sponge," Mummy said.
“I think your ring got in a bit of a jam, Mummy,” said Maria. And they both laughed.
