Buddy and Mary Ann Sones have been married since March 3, 1982, but Buddy hasn’t been able to wear his wedding ring for over 30 years.
One day, while cleaning catfish in the backyard of his Mississippi home, Sones dropped the ring and lost it. He and his wife have been looking for the gold band for the last 30 years.
After that much time had passed, I can’t imagine that Buddy ever thought he would see his precious ring again, but things unfold in the strangest of ways sometimes.
This past summer, Buddy’s neighbor Calvin Morris was doing a little landscaping — transplanting rocks between the front and back yards of his house, to be exact — when he noticed a tiny bird’s nest on the ground between his and Buddy’s houses.
It just goes to show you, folks: Miracles do happen. Never stop looking out for them.
