Normally Sara lived to hike, but lately she had trouble just getting herself out of bed.
So when her boyfriend kept trying to drag her along on this hike, she wasn’t sure she wanted to go. He seemed so eager for her to come along though, so finally she relented.
Her sadness continued along the path through the park, though she still tried to smile since her boyfriend seemed to be having a good time.
Then she spotted something in the rocks and bent down, and she did something she hadn’t done on a long time. She genuinely smiled. Somehow that little flower growing out of this rock gave her hope. If this flower wouldn’t quit growing, neither would she.
