A Gem of a Discovery


My wife has been having a tough time over this episode. She was cleaning house a few months ago when something on her hand snagged a furniture covering. Her engagement diamond had loosened itself from its fitting and was lost.

She delayed talking to the insurance guys. I remember my idea of turning off the lights in a room by room search with a flashlight beam hovering along the floor. We have a fairly cluttered house with pets, books, music, and whatnot, so the call to our insurance agent finally happened today. Anita and the rep finally talked on the phone tonight. But wouldn’t you know …

Not two hours after that call, the diamond was found under the baseboard in our guestroom.

Thank you Jesus and Saint Anthony.
