Just when the caterpillar thought his life was over…he became a butterfly!

One of my very best friends on the planet gave me a coffee mug a few years back with that very saying..There have been many many mornings when I would pour that dark magical elixir into that mug… each time it cause’s me to stop and ponder the shear truth of words…Just when the caterpillar thought his life was over…he became a butterfly…

Of course, as always, I think of Lulu but it is beyond that. I think that each of us has experienced dark moments in our lives when we feel despair and all hope seems lost but that is the coolest thing about hope! Hope gives us wings!

This very same friend gave me a poster that is Lulu’s talks about hope…it says…Hope is something that will never leave you, once you have it, it becomes a part of who you are… I believe that to be true…

 Even on our darkest days when all seems lost especially hope, it finds a way back to you on the wings of a butterfly, in the comforting words of a friend…

I awoke at 3:30 this morning…Lulu wanted me to write… I made coffee and as I lifted up the mug and gazed yet again at the words on the mug. I realized something…whether we believe it or not, we will all transform just like the butterfly. It is the believing that gives us hope.

Believing in miracles is the only difference between having a broken heart and having your heart broken open.

 It is a miracle that a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. We are all made up of the same stuff. Each one of us is a miracle waiting to remember that we too have wings.

Sending lots of love,
