My mother will be 83 next month. She is presently lying in a hospital bed recuperating from major surgery to her colon. I would like to make her last days, months or maybe even years as comfortable as possible. I am writing to see if you can bring a little happiness and joy for my mother.
A brief family synopsis: My mother worked for Hebrew National in 36Â° temperature for over twenty years in 12 hour shifts 6-7 days a week. She absolutely had to see my sister and I graduate college. My father died in 1992 from a stroke. He had grand mal seizures from epilepsy he incurred from a butt of a rifle striking his head when he was forced to dig his own grave and left for dead in WWII. He was a very proud man. His disability and heart condition did not deter him from working to support his famliy until the day a minor stroke left him partially paralyzed and unable to work. He worked hard all his life and did not let his epilepsy get in the way. He was embarrassed by it and tried to hide it, which in turn gave him immense fortitude and strength.
Luxuries were rare. My father always promised to buy my mother a diamond ring to replace a small ring among other things that were taken, including almost my father’s life in WWII. My parents are from Poland and told me numerous stories of WWII like: “If you put your hat out during a bombing raid you might catch a flying bomb.” A bit exaggerated I might think! Some stories were horrific to repeat.
My mother lives with my family, and my sister lives out of state. We are living like so many other families, from paycheck to paycheck and could not possibly afford a diamond ring for Mom. She wears my sister’s college graduation ring every day with great pride.
This is the only ring among her faux rings she admires the most. Your adopt a ring would bring tears of joy to her and other families. I plan to return the ring upon my mother’s death.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration, and may God bless youfor bringing so much happiness to other people’s lives.
