    Last weekend I went to Salisbury with my sister and her friend. During our visit to the church I spotted this lady:

    An amazing photo with a story that should touch everyone during this holiday season. At any time for that matter. Thanks for sharing!

    it's a lovely photo. If her story is true (and why would she lie) I hope there is a God. And I hope He (or She) listened to her story. I've had bad days....really bad days. Days where I thought jumping in front of bus would ease the pain. But her day.....wow. Unbelievable. That's a bad day.

    Thank you guys! It's a very sad story and I am pretty sure it's true as I heard her talking to her mother on my phone. I wish I had taken a photo of her face as well.

    I just used the 14-45mm lens as that's all I had with me.
