Are YOU a bluebonnet? Do you know a bluebonnet?

I wasn't born in Texas, but I was raised by Texans, and I have always loved bluebonnets. When I was growing up in St. Louis, my mom wanted to grow bluebonnets to remind her of home. But she couldn't get the seeds to grow, even with her green thumb! It turns out that bluebonnet seeds are just perfectly suited for harsh Texas weather. In fact, to get them to grow outside of Texas, you have to practically destroy them by cutting, scraping, and pounding them before they'll germinate.

That story has always stuck with me, and it seems like a great analogy for many of the strong women in my life. We are not all born strong, but the trials life throws at us cut us up, scrape us, pound us - and we BLOSSOM.
