I think that any diamond lucky enough to have my mother-in-law as its adopted mother would find that it is equal in shine with her heart and smile.
My mother-in-lawâ€™s mother lost her family to the Holocaust when she was 12. The only thing she managed to save, thanks to her mother hiding it, was her engagement ring. It may be small in size but what it represents is priceless. When my mother in law was married it was given to her and shenever took it off, until I married her son. She sat down with me the day we announced our engagement and took the ring off from her finger and gently placed it on mine. She told me that I and her mother had much in common as her mother had lost her family at 12 and I lost mine at 12 to cancer.
She told me that the ring symbolized love, committment, faith and especially strength. I have never been so touched in my life as I was that day and everyday since becoming her daughter-in-law. She always thinks of others before herself and does not consider it a sacrifice but an honor. She always says family is everything and something to cherish. I would love for her to have a diamond, as she is as precious as the diamond itself.
