It’s all too true that we cannot appreciate what we take for granted…
Like winter (or people), for example.
After seeing large expanses of snow and ice for weeks on end, it might be all too easy to start wishing for spring.
But let us stop and ponder for a moment…
Take the simple beauty of a snowflake: cold, mysterious, capable of inspiring child-like wonder – and yet each one is unique.
Slender needles, delicate ferns, rimed balls or lacy crystals: snowflakes are the tears the clouds send to cheer us up.
Each individual flake is has its own history – and is created by the elements as it falls gently to earth. And no flake is like any other.
Just like us really.
Each flake has its own beauty and is shaped by its journey and experiences. Just like us.
So, next time you are greeted by an expanse of snow – remember that what you are looking at is an infinity of possibilities.
