When I first downloaded and looked at this image, I wasn’t sure it was worth keeping. The photo of the sunflower is not the best, but then it occurred to me that this sunflower may not have been as pristine as it was when it first opened…but that’s a lot like our lives. We are all brought into this world to experience a new life with great expectations, but after being knocked around by time and experience…we may not look as fresh as when we first blossomed, but life does that to all of us. This sunflower has certainly seen better times, but with the summer heat and dry conditions setting in, it perhaps is not as picture perfect as it was when it began life’s journey. But who are we to judge? Life happens.
