Diamonds in the Snow

Diamonds scattered in the snow,

Twinkle, twinkle, tiny stars;

Viewing life through children’s eyes,

Look how rich we really are!


When my daughter was small, she pointed out the snowy diamonds with the delight peculiar to tiny children, declaring, “Mommy, we’re rich!”  I will never forget this life lesson – or its charming teacher!
