My blog was originally called Suzanne’s Sanctuary. Last month I changed the name of my blog to A blossom in the snow after coming upon the following quote.
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
I felt something spark by the poetic simile behind the blossom, something fragile and soft, not only surviving but thriving despite it’s world being blanketed by the cold, hard snow.
