A diamond in the rough…

Kate always says this about rough characters with a heart of gold.

A diamond in the rough. I believe she’s said this about her own Frankie when she 1st met him.

Susan and I were out years ago walking around Kent, Ohio and talking about “Brady’s Leap”, and oddly enough about my losing weight and getting in shape. When she reached down on that river bank and picked up a piece of coal and said,”It doesn’t matter what the shape is whether its a lump of coal or a flawless diamond, it’s only our perception of it.” Well, I kept that piece of coal and I see it everyday and remind myself what a diamond I am in my daughters beautiful eyes. And my, what a lucky Mom I am.
