The Unbelievable World of Snowflakes

The Unbelievable world of Snowflakes:

"They say that every snowflake is different. If that were true, how could the world go on? How could we ever get up off our knees? How could we ever recover from the wonder of it?"

Though written centuries earlier Francis Bacon has a response:
"Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand—and melting like a snowflake..."

Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.
A couple of years ago I bought a book on snowflakes for Ken as a Christmas present.
There are so many Miracles in this world, all we need to do is recognize them when they come our way. Marilyn you are good at that and I learned how to recognize them from you.
