A Mother’s Day Ring

“Happy Mother’s Day!” exclaimed Racum Raccoon to his mother, who was drinking her morning cup of coffee.

“Thank you,” cried Mother. “Oh Racum! I am afraid this is not a very good Mother’s Day.”

“Why?” asked Racum, seeing that his mother was visibly upset. “What is going on?”

“I don’t know how to tell you this but you will find out eventually,” cried Mother. “I lost that beautiful ring you made me for Mother’s Day last year.”

“You didn’t lose it,” said Racum. “I have it.”

“You do?” asked Mother.

“Yes,” said Racum. “I saw it on your dresser a few months ago so I took it because I wanted to make you a necklace for this Mother’s Day, using the same pattern as I did for the ring.”

“Oh Racum!” cried Mother, when Racum handed her the ring and also a necklace. “The necklace is beautiful. It matches the pattern on the ring perfectly.”

“I should have told you I had your ring but I wanted the necklace to be a surprise,” said Racum.

“It is all sorted out now,” said Mother. “Racum, thank you for the beautiful gift. You have made this the best Mother’s Day, ever!”

“You are welcome,” said Racum, giving Mother a big hug and kiss. “Happy Mother’s Day.”


Moral of this Story:

  • Always tell someone if you take something from them.
  • Example: Racum Raccoon did not tell Mother he took the ring he made her last Mother’s Day because he wanted to make her a matching necklace. She thought she lost it.
