The leaf was probably not there long. But its influence will be on the floor forever.
So it is with many people who pass through our lives. Some with us for just a moment in time: their spirit remains with us forever.
Sometimes, even the quickest passing of another person presses a beautiful memory on the wall of our heart.
Without the leaf imprint, the garden shop floor would be just beige cement. So when someone leaves you behind, do not grieve. You are more beautiful for how they changed you. Even if it seems it was only long enough for them to have just barely scratched the surface.
