butterfly wishes

My mother-in-law is fighting for her health.
Here's my contribution:
Along with my prayers, I wish for you:
the strength of a newly emerging butterfly
the freedom of a butterfly in flight
the rest a butterfly feels as she lights on a flower
the knowledge that you bring beauty to others as butterflies do

    Denalee, tell us about taking that photo. It's your own isn't it?

  12. Actually, our oldest son, Trevor, took that photo at the big family reunion in Antelope, Idaho. He was taking Sierra's senior pictures out in the sage brush and wheat fields and came upon this butterfly liting on a thorn. Gorgeous, isn't it!

  13. Thanks Denalee!
    Mom is doing so very well in recovering from the brain surgery. Her positive outlook is outstanding! My deepest hope is that she continues that spirit through the radiation and chemotherapy and that she is surrounded by love and peace. Thank you for thinking of her.
