What Do They Represent?

     When I think of diamonds, the first thing that comes to mind is Royalty. I'm talking Princess Diana. She was the 'people's princess.' I happen to believe that every girl deserves at least one diamond. I think Princess Diana would have agreed with me.
     Diamonds seem to represent wealth and prosperity. I guess I'm just a romantic kinda gal, because I always look for a deeper meaning in things. Sure, diamonds posess an everlasting beauty, but what did it take for them to become that beautiful? What is the story behind the diamond you have allowed to grace your finger? Did it once belong to a Queen? Was it smuggled into the country by means of someone swallowing a balloon? I like stories, and this 'enquiring' mind wants to know.
     I'm not Royalty, I can assure you. I'm not wealthy or prosperous by the world's standards, but I do own a few diamonds. Why? Because I like the way they make me feel! Because they are so beautiful and shiny. And of course, because my husband says that I deserve them. :)

About Me

My photo
I like to think of myself as a sparkly jewel, though I'm not quite perfect. In fact, I'm far from it. I think becoming a dazzling gem is a life-long journey. I'm a daughter, a sister, a mother, a wife, a BFF, friend, and individual. I have scars from deep wounds and and hopes and dreams to carry me past them. I'm just me.
