Two identical twins had very different worldviews. One was a hope-filled optimist. “Everything is coming up roses!” he would say. The other twin was a sad and hopeless pessimist. No matter what happened, he always saw the negative side of the situation.
The worried parents of the boys brought them to the local psychologist. He suggested to the parents a plan to balance the twins’ personalities. “On their next birthday, put them in separate rooms to open their gifts. Give the pessimist the best toys you can afford, and give the optimist a box of manure. That should balance them out.” The parents followed these instructions and carefully observed the results.
When they peeked in on the pessimist, they heard him audibly complaining, “I don’t like the color of this computer . I’ll bet this calculator will break . . . I don’t like the game . . . I know someone who’s got a bigger toy car than this . . .”
Tiptoeing across the corridor, the parents peeked in and saw their little optimist gleefully throwing the manure up in the air.
He was giggling. “You can’t fool me! Where there’s this much manure, there’s gotta be a pony!”

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend (although I know a few horses that would step up and claim that title for themselves!) and it may be because diamonds are the ultimate in optimism. Diamonds are, after all, basically coal that learned how to shine under pressure! Deep within the earth, tremendous forces are exerted that would destroy most things – but diamonds ensure, and so do we.
This 14K Gold Diamond Horseshoe Ring is the perfect ring to remind us that no matter what life throws at us, we can come through it shining! The horseshoe is traditionally the symbol of good luck, and it’s easy to feel lucky when this beauty’s on your hand!
