|As our newly hatched butterflies skipped along our fingertips, I realized how fragile life can be.|
|And the butterflies were a great way to explain to my daughter that saying goodbye can be beautiful. It doesn't have to be sad.|
|As she said to her little friends "Go- be free!," my heart was warmed, my eyes finally dried....|
|And how exciting for the butterflies- feeling the wind beneath their wings for the first time.|
|Just a couple of weeks ago they came to our house like this....|
Within a couple of days, they transitioned from pupa to chrysalis...
|And about a week later, they spread their wings for the first time.|
|Enjoy life. Appreciate the details. Grow something. Love someone. Be loved. Oh- and hug your grandparents :)|
