Diamonds and Daisies for April

I just knew there would be a shop where I could find both words represented in one item and I found it at Flower Girl Card Shop. In the description for her card she explains the symbolism behind each of these things.

The birth month flower for April is the Daisy, symbolizing innocence, youth, simplicity and modesty.

The birth month gemstone is the Diamond which symbolizes constancy, excellence, joy and purity.
I love all kinds of flowers. I don't always know the names of them but that doesn't take away from the joy of looking. It does seem that everyone knows what a daisy is though. A simple flower in yellow or white that makes me smile to see them. I try to have a life like that. A simple life with smiles from those I come in contact with each day.

Diamonds on the other hand are a long time in the making. They are difficult and dangerous to find. They need some work to look their best and as someone said in marketing them they are forever. At 52 I am becoming more diamond like in that I certainly need a lot of work to look my best. I don't worry about it too much since sparkling has never been what I am about.

I'll stick to the daisy style of life because it suits me. Simple and modest even if I have to give up on the innocence and youth part.
