Diamonds R Forever

The best presents I have ever received from Terry, have been the unexpected ones.


For a long time I have wanted a ring that fit just right on my thumb.


Even though my gem of choice is not diamonds, and my metal of choice is not gold, I cherish this ring.


Because "diamonds are forever, like you and me, and gold is preciouse, like you are to me".  That's what he said after surgery.

Neither are really my choices either Carol... but with a sentiment like that, I think it could become a favorite most certainly! How sweet.

Carol said...

Yes, it is sweet. And smart because he KNEW if those diamonds were any bigger than chips, I wouldn't have been very happy to receive them. ~lol~ Actually, as you might guess, what he said is what made the gift so precious.

Oh Carol, I just now saw about your surgery. I don't know why it didn't show up in my blog-feed, but I should have know to check as I have been thinking of you often. I am so glad you didn't wait and got to the doctor. Big healing hugs to you. The ring is beautiful and it's meaning is so special. I will be keeping you in my thoughts for healing and quick recovery.

Lol, I just told my husband yesterday after seeing a diamond jewelry commercial that what they were advertising would wreck my Christmas if that is what he gave me! I understand the sentiment though and it would be precious to me under the circumstances.

I just got the notification that this post was up and now I see another new one I haven't been notified about. I wonder why they are so slow.
