The room was drab, with dull walls and carpeting, unwelcoming seating, and a battered coffee table that had long since seen care and consideration from hot mugs or spillages.
If one wasn’t already depressed, this room was perfect for draining your spirit.
First impressions are important………… you never get a second chance to make one.
She placed the sunflowers in the centre of the table that had been pushed against the wall.
They would be the first thing everyone would see, that splash of bright colour in a sea of shadowy greys and blues, the beacon upon which to concentrate and find hope.
Sunflowers can grow anywhere, they just need a chance to begin, and that was what her  self esteem classes were about.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
