"Some days are diamonds, some days are stone"--John Denver crooned the words and sometimes they come to mind. When times are trying, as they have been over the weekend (my little dog is sick), I try to remember the diamond days and this old saying by
"There are only two ways to live your life,
One is as though nothing is a miracle,
The other is as though everything is a miracle."
Even the stones have a beauty about them, you just have to be willing to see it.
