Something to bring me joy...
by Lori R.
My mom died in June 09 from cancer, and although I found it difficult to speak at her graveside service I did so anyhow. When I was done a lady came up to me to tell me a Monarch butterfly had flown around me and my mom's flowers the entire time I spoke and when I was done it flew away.
It made me feel in some strange way that maybe she was there with me that day...and many times after that day my children and I would see butterflies in our backyard daily where they had never been before. My kids often call out, "there is Nana," everytime they see a butterfly....it has given us something to smile about and has helped the healing especially with the children. I now find myself enjoying their company, whereas in the past I never gave them much thought. Thank you for letting me share.
