Snowflakes

“A snowflake is one of God’s most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!” ~Author Unknown

It was snowing when Bob left for work. I always walk out to the car with him and when we got there he pointed out a snowflake. Yes, an individual snowflake in all it’s glory. The delicate structure of the flake was intact and clearly visible. Remember when we were children and tried to catch snowflakes on black paper just to see this?

I thanked Bob for pointing it out, kissed him and sent him off to work. Then I walked back inside amazed by what I had just seen — that one beautiful, intricate, single snowflake that can shut down entire cities when it decides to work with others.
