I repeat this photo today with the add on little thought that at all times we experience days when we wilt, collapse, fall or fold over sometimes with worry, stress, exhaustion and other overwhelming personal stuff. It can be a difficult place to be. But there is always help at hand, there is always support, always someone we can turn to. We are not on our own. It is this love and support that helps us to stand tall again, to find renewed strength and energy and to find ourselves again.
