Have you ever heard of a species of bird called the goldcrest? It is a very tiny bird about the size of your thumb. Goldcrests are birds that can withstand very harsh winter climates.
Animals have different methods of winter survival.
Bears hibernate and migratory birds fly south for the winter.
Goldcrests also have their own special way of withstanding the cold.
First of all, they build their nests in a way that helps keep out cold air. At night, they huddle together to make collective body heat. During the day, they are always on the move searching for food, which also helps maintain body heat.
The way that goldcrests are so active in the day, it seems that they also have an ability to go on because of a passion for life.
Last week, a customer shared with me how times are difficult for him these days. It’s no surprise though as many of us are also periodically going through some tough times, especially during this economy.
Though, no matter how difficult things become, I hope that we all can get through those times with a strong passion for life. It’s important to have passion for everything we do. It makes everything worth it.
With the warmth of your patronage, we will be sure to do our job with passion, here at our cleaners.
