"As I came back into the stairwell I noticed a crumpled leaf on the floor in the shape of a little frog.

Sometimes life feels hopeless. Maybe we are struggling with an addiction, or our hearts are breaking. We might have got trapped in a stressful job, squashed by the pressures of supporting our family, or we might have retreated into a prison of depression or bitterness. Maybe there hasn’t been any light for a long time...
