A Diamond in the Making!

A DIAMOND IN THE MAKING!!
A DIAMOND IS THE MOST PRECIOUS OF ALL MINERALS.
IT IS THE STRONGEST AND MOST BRILLIANT OF ALL.
IT TAKES YEARS & YEARS OF EFFORT, DEDICATION,
& ENDURING THE STRESS & PRESSURE OF LIFE
TO MAKE A DIAMOND. YET, WHEN THE
DIAMOND IS FORMED, IT IS THE
ITEM MOST VALUED IN THE
WORLD. LEE, YOU ARE A
IN THE MAKING.
This story is given to students and advisors who have persevered through a
major challenge in working with challenging people or difficult situations.
I give the student a ring box with a piece of coal for encouragement and to
signify the she really is a "Diamond in the making."
