Retracing Her Steps
May be Sarah had scooped the ring along with the change from her bag and dropped it in the homeless man’s cup. She had not looked at the change when she was giving them away. Well, the notion took her breath away. So was her ring gone for good?
Back To Spot
Well, the chances of finding the ring back were next to no. However, she decided to give it a try. She kept on praying and hoping to find the man on the spot. In a matter of a few minutes, Sarah found herself back on the same spot. Unfortunately, the beggar was nowhere to be seen.
The man wasn’t there. She wondered if she was ever going to see him again. Sarah had no hope now. She returned home, dejected and distressed. She told her husband about it with tears in her eyes. Her husband, Bill, consoled her and told her to look for the same guy at the same place. So, she went there again with the hope of finding him.
Fortunately, the guy was there. He was standing at the same spot with the same cup. Sarah had never felt so relieved on seeing someone. She paced towards him and said, “I don’t know if you remember me, but I think I gave you something that’s very precious to me.” The homeless man’s reply brought tears to her eyes. He asked, “Was it a ring?” “Yeah, I have it, I kept it for you.”
Overwhelmed With Relief
Sarah was happy and surprised both. She had not expected him to keep the ring. In fact, she thought he would have sold it off for some money. Most individuals would do that. However, this man was clearly different.
Sarah wanted to thank him but could not find the right word. The woman had run out of words. Tears were rolling down her cheek when she took back the ring. She thanked him but she knew that was not enough o show him how grateful was she. She thought of doing something big for him.
