Like a butterfly.... it goes where it pleases & pleases where it goes.
Please read entire post, a surprise is waiting!!
I just love butterflies, dont you? They have a very special meaning to me...
I lost my Mom to Lung cancer, July 17, 2003. In losing her I also lost a part of myself, it'something that forever change you. She was a beautiful woman inside and out, she always put her Family first and rarely thought of herself, which to me was sad. She never complained about anything, I mean anything. I sure didn't get that from her. ;)
The day we laid my Mom to rest , a butterfly as big as a tennis ball fluttered by and landed on her casket spray, and just rested there during the service. I remember hearing someone behind me gasp. After her funeral we all gathered at our home. We had lived there about 5 years and never before that day had I seen a butterfly in our backyard, as we all gathered on the patio, someone said something and I turned to see why they were all gathering around a bush. There rested on a branch, a Butterfly identical to the one at the gravesite service. I felt a sense of calm come over me. In the difficult months ahead it seemed a butterfly presented itself to me at times I need reassurance most.
To this day when I see a butterfly, may it be, real, a picture, on a card ... I still feel that sense of calm, and a gentle reminder that she will always be with me!
