It's not easy being a snowflake. Yeah, it seems all wonderful to be unique and beautiful, but you're always falling. It's always cold. And, ultimately, you're going to get crushed and buried- then melt away forever as if you never existed. You get lost in the mass of trillions of other snowflakes, just as unique as yourself, but people never see you.

Yet, the reason you exist, is to join with every other snow flake to create a giant blanket of white that makes the world stop, look and listen to the muffled silence. You make the world look up, and though they are looking at you, they don't ever see you. They watch you dance and drift along, but what they see is beauty, the sky, heaven and God. That is why you exist. But it's not easy being a snowflake.
