I bought a ring for my mother with my pocket money thanks to the “lie” of the saleswoman

The following story is republished by the team Memories from the 1980s-1990s flash back where it was posted on the occasion of Mother’s Day

One day like today I took all my savings and went to a jewelry store.

I was – I was not 6 years old. You see, my mother was celebrating and I wanted to make her happy and thank her for what she had offered me until then.

So I chose this ring.

I went to the cash register and asked the saleswoman, who also happened to be the owner of the store, how much she makes. He counted my money and told me they arrived. Of course they were not enough.

By force I had 10,000 drachmas and all of them collected from the money from the carols. He just wanted to make me believe that was enough.

Good luck to her when she realized my adoration for my mother and almost gave me the ring, which for me and my mother has great emotional value. As soon as I got home happy, I gave it to my mother, who could not believe her eyes.

She was ashamed and went to return it the next day, but the woman did not accept it and so we kept it. Humanity is still rooted in us.

Let us dig it more often and let us have it as a guide in our every move.

From the very next year, when I realized the value of money, I bought her a rose every year.

I will close with a song that my mother used to tell me when I was a child: Kisses are sweeter than mother honey and her warmth is always a hug.

And it is valid. The motherly embrace is healing, children!
