A Blast From The Past
When she heard her son's voice on the phone it seemed so distant. Even though she heard his words, she couldn't help but believe something was wrong. His words made her feel like she was traveling through time, 13 years into the past to be exact, when she lost something that she cherished more than anything. Now, as she nears the end of her life, she was hearing this amazing news. And the story she was listening to about how it happened was nothing short of miraculous.
A Quiet Life, Disrupted

Mary Grams has lived a long life and she felt like nothing could take her by surprise. Mary is an 84-year-old widow that lives in Camrose, southeast of Edmonton, Canada. She lives a quiet, ordinary life. Mary lost her husband in 2012, but she still gets to spend time with her children and grandchildren. Recently, Mary was able to be reunited with something she thought she lost with her youth. It only took 13 years to make its way back to her.
At Home On The Farm
Mary and her husband spent many years together on their family farm in Armena, Alberta. Armena is a small village located in a remote part of the province. The community thrives off of its agriculture and Mary's family was no different. Their farm had been in their family for 105 years, and they did everything they could to keep up the farm and the garden. Unfortunately, while Mary was working in the garden one day, something horrible happened.
Too Many Weeds
While Mary was walking in her garden one day in 2004, she noticed that there were a large amount of weeds on one side. She was concerned that the weeds would violate her other crops, so she started pulling them. Even though she didn't have gloves to wear, Mary didn't mind. She pulled out all of the weeds, completed her work, then went inside to finish the other chores. It wasn't until hours later that Mary noticed something shocking.
Nowhere In Sight
Mary had lost something she had for 50 years. The engagement ring Norman gave to her when he proposed in 1951. She thought about where she could have lost it, realizing that it probably got stuck on a weed in the garden and fallen off. She immediately ran outside to look for it. “I got on my hands and knees and looked all over and I could not find it,” Mary explained. Mary cried herself to sleep, but she refused to give up the search.
