Thankful For Butterflies

6 Aug

English: Monarch butterflies









The cloud of butterflies flew up into the sky, dots of pale yellow wings against an azure sky.  For one, brief, fleeting moment time stood still. I was mesmerized by these simple creatures. Simple in their flight, golden in their beauty.

This Monday, not so different than all the other Mondays of the year, and yet……. no day is ever exactly the same.

There is always something to be thankful for.


Today I am thankful for:

* the quiet breathing of my husband sleeping next to me

* fresh eggs from my own chickens

* being in the midst of a cloud of butterflies

* a bowl of chocolate peanut butter ice cream

* sharing stories

* meeting someone new

* friends

* walking around the property

* feeling at home

* a son’s new car

* happiness in a mother’s heart

* tender moments with my children

* lively discussions

* singing Christmas carols in August
