Road to the Ring

In Attire
My mothers ring
My mothers ring

It all started February25th, 2006 When my mom and dad meet but little did my mom know that a couple of years later a silver lined ring with sparkling crystal clear diamonds will be sitting on her left hand. But let’s go back all the way to the 1920 something with my great great great grandmother Rosa descent from Pesado. She traveled “from Puerto Rico came on a boat to New York once she got to New York she discovered Coney island” said my grandmother. My grandmother stayed in New York all of her life and never when back to Puerto Rico even after many attempts to take her back to visit. But she was very happy in New York she worked as a foster mom “her house was like a playroom” said my grandmother. You may ask how this relates to my mother's wedding ring but without my great great great grandmother me my parent wouldn't be there today.
