So, for some reason, my co-workers were talking about diamonds today...and the size that "certain" diamonds SHOULD be in a given, important time in a woman's life.
Basically, quality matters more than size (aka quantity in this little scenario). This is my eventual conclusion after listening to the woman chatter on about love and whatever (haha, seriously, love is a wonderful thing). Quality in the relationship matters, too, and perhaps, sometimes, a big ole honkin' diamond (whether at that "certain" time or any other, for that matter) may just be an expensive bandaid for a hurtin' relationship.
It's amazing what I learn when I work with people old enough to be my mother!
