The other day I passed by this barren concrete wall. As I looked closer I saw this tiny leaf growing out of a crack and right behind it there was already the shoot for a second one. We often say that life is fragile, and that is certainly true, but life also has this surprising power and strength to spring forth where least expected. Give it enough years and this concrete wall will be in crumbles and in its place might stand a tall proud tree. There is hope for the future!
