There is no doubt that mothers will do everything for their children.
That’s why one mother from London decided to sell her engagement ring when her children were still young to make ends meet.
Kim Rowell shared how her mother Denise Tarry sold the precious item when she was young as they desperately needed money.
To surprise her mother for Christmas, Kim gave her a replica of the original ring.
In a tear-jerking video shared on social media, Denise can be seen opening the box containing the special gift from her daughter.
The devoted mother became very emotional upon seeing the gift and she tearfully placed the ring on her finger.
“My mum had to sell her engagement ring to pay our bills when I was a kid – today we gave her a replacement,” Kim wrote.
Touched by the daughter’s actions, one person commented: “Crying along with your mum. That was a lovely thing to do. Despite the fact you like many of us were struggling financially growing up, she obviously did a good job as a parent for you to do something like this as an adult. Really lovely.”
Another wrote: “Amazing, nice to see a story that really reflects the majority of us normal people, I’m always embarrassed about how lavish people are and feel useless but the things from the heart are the best. Bravo.”
A third said: “This is beautiful. But most of all, your mum, like so many mums (including mine) is a hero. Many mums up and down the country right now are giving up all they have or treasure for their children. Let’s make sure mums don’t have to do this in future. Give them dignity.”
Other people also started sharing stories about their parents, with one writing: “My mum sold a rare Beatles collection she had when I was a kid to make ends meet. It was an honour to buy the exact same collection back for her Christmas present around 10 years ago. She cried and said she didn’t deserve it.”
Another wrote: “This resonates with me, I once heartbreakingly sold my wedding ring and watch to get enough money to pay bills. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do for your family. A lovely video. A lovely gesture.”
