A few months ago, Stu and I were watching a show on discovery channel (?) and there was an old man talking about the composition of precious stones. He said that diamonds come from the explosion and scattering of star particles, where the core of giant stars are hot enough to transform the carbon into the sparkly things we women love. I don't think that's where all diamonds come from, I know they can be formed from carbon with intense heat and pressure on earth, but I choose to believe mine came from a star :) Maybe that's why I am so drawn to it...
Stuart pointed out that it's been a year since he proposed, September 26th, 2008. The day he gave me a star. When I first put saw the ring on my finger, I was a bawl baby. I was so happy! He wanted me. He loved me. With that ring, he promised me forever. And I wore it proudly, as a declaration to the world that I was his. I finally got to give Stuart his ring when we exchanged them in the Mesa Temple a few months later, I was ecstatic finally able see it on his finger.
love. happiness. support. faith. forever.
p.s. last night as I was rushing to the checkout at the grocery store, I got cut off by an old man who had at least 30 cans of Fancy Feast and one tube of Preparation H. That's all. Hmm, nothing like a balanced diet..
