Mystery girl returns wedding ring
WHEN Lesley Grant realised her wedding ring was missing, she never dreamed she would see it again.
But thanks to an unknown little girl the ring is now back safe and sound on her finger.
Mrs Grant, who lives at Maclean, first realised the ring had dropped from her finger upon leaving Yamba Sports Ground on Saturday after watching her daughter, Caitlin, play junior soccer.
“We were driving away and I realised that it was missing. I felt sick and I went cold,” she said.
“We went back to where we were sitting during the game and searched, but we couldn't find it.”
With one last hope, she went to the kiosk on the rare chance it may have been found and handed in.
“I didn't really want to ask at the kiosk because I thought there was no chance it could have been found,” she said.
But to her amazement, the women at the kiosk told Lesley her ring had been handed in earlier by a young girl.
“I was just ecstatic, I couldn't believe my luck. The women at the kiosk told me I must have done something wonderful, to get such good karma,” she said.
Mrs Grant and her husband James were married in September 2005 after being together for 14 years.
“Our wedding rings have our names engraved on the band joined together by silver hearts,” she said.
“They were made by a friend so they are very personal and unique.”
While Mrs Grant does not know the name of the young girl who returned her wedding ring, she would like to extend her heart–felt thanks to both her and the women at the kiosk who arranged for the ring to be looked after until it could be re–claimed.
