Engagement ring

This ring is special to me since it was the ring my dad used to propose to my mom, it shows the story of how it all started. This ring came from Mexico. Since it is an engagement ring, the tradition is to propose to someone with it. My mom has the ring and she loves it, it means a lot to her and me because that’s how my family started. My mom showed me this ring because I asked her how my dad proposed to her. My mom told me that when she and my dad saw each other, it was like love at first sight. I think the ring shows how much my parents loved each other to have married each other. I mostly connect to the ring on love, it shows me how beautiful love can be and how it’s a nice feeling. This ring is special to me because I love thinking about how much my mom and dad love each other. When I was talking to my mom about her engagement ring she said “It didn’t come up to me about how much it costs because Iwas so happy in the moment and the ring looks so beautiful and amazing to me, I was really happy in the moment.” When she said that it made me realize that no matter how much something costs, the story behind it is what counts. And what it means to you is better than how much it costs.
