Support in unlikely places
Today when I was feeling low and that my self-worth wasn’t worth an awful lot I like many turned to social media to air my frustrations.
I had the expected responses “cheer up chick” and “call me”, but the biggest support came from an unknown source and now friend I had met through my work with The Edith Ellen.
This support reminded me that: From little acorns, mighty oak trees grow.... but sometimes when the tree grows it forgets it was once a small acorn with many others. That the philosophy of the Edith Ellen foundation states: Everything starts with ourselves and how we treat everyone.... not just residents in care.
How strong that sentiment is, how just those few words started to help and I started to turn my day back around.
I hope today that everyone around the world finds the support they need in unlikely places, and that this support can help make their world a little better.
