A lovely card from a lovely, talented friend who always seems to know the exact words I need to hear. butterflies Enjoy your weekend! And Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.

  1. What a lovely greeting from your thoughtful friend! Butterflies always remind me that life is full of possibilities… that working our way through the mundane is often the only way to get to the next stage where joy and beauty await.


  2. I adore butterflies. What a beautiful card your friend gave you! A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to play flute for a Butterfly Bereavement Ceremony. All the bereaved families got a live butterfly in a box. I played the flute and led them out to the garden where they released their butterflies in memory of their lost loved ones. I released one in memory of my daughter. Such a powerful ceremony and more than ever I love butterflies and what they symbolize.


    • Cathy, that’s simply beautiful. It sounds like a lovely way to honour the memory of a loved one. Thanks so much for sharing that.

      I’m sorry for the loss of your daughter. *hugs*
