Wishing you bushes full of butterflies

You are having a bad day. You don’t want to face the obvious, that you have little control over your life, or even your own feelings about it. You’re so far from being able to pull yourself out of this that you don’t even want to.

Then you see it, a bush full of butterflies. At least a dozen of them, fluttering like animated jewels on the bush in your yard.

Then, just like that, your day is all better. And all it took was a miracle.

  1. No butterflies for me today. I had a harrowing morning drive where another driver narrowly missed slamming into my car (she left a very long skid mark on the road, I veered to the left towards oncoming traffic to make sure she missed me -fortunately the road was wide enough for me to do that safely). This afternoon I was thrilled to see a beautiful bluejay fly over my car (as I left to pick up one of the boys) and land in my favorite tree in my yard. I needed that bluejay.
