In many ways, I feel like this butterfly. I love to fly about, looking around, observing taking in life. At other times, I feel like this butterly hiding, not wanting people to see me, wanting to blend in but feeling like I don’t. Sometimes I feel beautiful and colorful, most of the time I don’t. The butterfly moves so fast, it is hard to photograph, hard to catch. When the butterfly stops, you can see its beauty, you can appreciate it, you can enjoy it. I rarely take the time to just sit and enjoy nature. I am busy going from place to place, putting out fires, chasing my kids, trying to build a struggling marriage. Sometimes, I forget who I really am, what I have to offer, why I am here. I am here for a reason, I know that. I love life, even when it is hard. I am thankful for my family, my friends, my job, and my faith. I am thankful, I took time to enjoy nature and reflect on the butterfly. Life is good, I am blessed.
