Yesterday while delivering the mail, I discovered some crocuses blooming in a yard. I look forward to seeing these tenacious little flowers every winter. Just as the temperatures are dropping and the world seems so bleak, up they come through the frozen earth. I think it's God's way of saying "Hold on, things are going to change!" It's also a lesson for us. Life is eternal. Just as the crocuses come back to life at the coldest of winter, we will rise again. I don't know your religion or creed, but I'm going to live forever. The crocuses told me.
