If your born in this dark dreary month of January your birth stone is the garnet - a beautiful deep red stone that generally comes from India.  It can actually be a few different colours but they are rarer than the red.

Gem stones are incredible - if you look into the dark earth and dig down its hard to think that way down deep is the possibility of diamonds and rubies etc.  Would the stones look quite as beautiful if buried and formed out of earth that was while or yellow ?  I don't think so, but there is something important to learn from this : we need the dark times for the light times to shine out.

When we sew with gold thread it will not look nearly so good as it does when surrounded with black.

And so with life, the tunnels we go through are hard work and sometimes its exhausting trying to get to the other end.  Rest assured that even if you cant see the light at the end, it is there.  If it were not then the tunnel would not be a tunnel but normality - it is a tunnel, with a beginning, middle and end.  Remember : there is an end.
