My friend posted this on her blog and I thought -- wow maybe this will be just the thing to get me blogging more diligently again, not that all three of you really care (I think I may be down to 1.5).
My own thirteen "diamonds"
1] The sound of my youngest daughter's voice when she greets me after an absence (no matter how long)
2] The smell of a baseball field in the early morning, and listening to the various sounds of teams warming up
3] The absolute abandon of my oldest daughter's laugh
4] My husband's smell
5] The look on the face of a little child who has just discovered something magnificent
6] The Closing Cross at a Job's Daughters meeting
7] A dog's wagging tail
8] The smell of freshly opened coffee
9] The first snowfall in the mountains
10] The smell of the Italian Deli near my house
11] My Aunt Jayne's hugs
12] The first sip of a Manhattan (even better when coupled with the smell of good cigars)
13] The first crocus of Spring
