We had been dating for several years when Christmas of 1971 he gave me my diamond. We were together at his parents home with just his parents, him and me. We had opened most all the gifts when he brought out this HUGE, HEAVY box. He gave me his pocket knife to cut tape and paper and as I worked my way down through all that I found box after box (with the pile on the floor growing bigger and bigger). I finally came to this little box and by this time was so taken by all the work he put into it didn’t even realize until I opened it that it was a diamond engagement ring.
I was so excited I jumped over all the stuff on the floor (with an open pocket knife in my hand) straight onto his lap. Oh, my how romantic but oh goodness what if I had stabbed him!! God blessed us that day and He continues to bless us.
