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
Courage is green and white and purple. Courage is strong...and yet fragile. Courage roars in the sunshine...and whispers in snowfall. Courage shivers bravely outside our back door. Coaxed from the ground by the warmth of a 60 degree day in February, then blanketed in four inches of fluffy white snow... a feast of color for the eye and a message for the soul....of finding the strength to persist... and the courage to endure. A lesson well worth remembering.
