    I am surprised the choice would be something with a flaw when we strive for perfection. Is the message that nothing is perfect and everything is flawed? And if the best things are flawed then a diamond is better than a pebble. This will have me thinking about it today.

  2. Well, on the one hand………LOL

    Definitely agree with the quotation; would much rather be a diamond! Everyone has flaws, but should that let you settle for being a common old pebble? Haha
