Nature is a beautiful teacher. Nature does not resist – it just is. In nature we witness that even through fires and frosts new life comes forth. We often hear the adage of the pressure that creates diamonds. We teach children about the caterpillar that goes into a cocoon, endures the tightness and becomes a butterfly. As we face times that force us to adjust, adapt and alter, may we remember the power of nature’s transformations that are forged from inescapable change.
