My Logo - The Palm Tree

In a storm (even hurricanes), the palm tree is flexible.   It can bend and sway rather than snap, and its leaves fold inward from the middle to protect itself.   As the storm passes, it reemerges quickly--its leaves expand and form a beautiful, full canopy at the top soaking in the sun.  The mighty palm can help us remember that we can weather the storm too.
