After The Snowstorm

He was an "outsider", who had established a successful motor-repair shop, built with his hard-work and perseverance.

His friendly nature and excellent customer-service won him many new customers that was a source of great irritation for the other motor-repair shops.

Wishing to ruin him & his business, they set his shop aflame...

That winter he faced the snowstorm with no hatred or irritation, calmly reminding himself resolutely- "If winter comes, can spring be far behind?"

He faced many snowstorms & today, he's the billionaire owner of a world-famous motor-car company!

  3. I went to elementary school with the girl whose dad drew the Michelin Man. He did a presentation at our school one day and gave us a coloring book with some of his drawings. I like where the prompt took you and look where it took me.
