Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go;
 it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
Alice M. Swaim

Last night we had a snow storm. 
This morning it took hot coffee and warm mittens to get me out the door at 7:00 a.m.
As silent bundles of both men and women traipsed past me through the snow I envisioned fragile blossoms.

I have a hard time imagining fragile blossoms when I look out at the snow and ice!
