Were these diamonds I found nestled into the succulents on my patio? I touched them, confirming the sparkling and glittering lights they reflected were the magic of the rain last night and not diamonds sprinkled mysteriously in my garden. Whether rain drops or precious gems, they warmed my heart as I took time honoring the… Continue reading Found Diamonds?
