Anniversary with meaning


13 years today, I lost my precious niece. She always said that she wanted to come back as a butterfly. Yesterday in the garden a butterfly landed on one of my plants. I managed to actually stroke the butterfly. To me that felt so lovely and a comfort to me. It was as if my beautiful niece was with me in my garden. Hence the reason for all the flowers that I grow, I want to hopefully draw more butterflies into the garden, and each one (in my mind), will be my lost very much loved niece.

    Glad that brought you comfort.  Isn't it odd the things that can make you feel better about loss!    Every time i'm in my garden and think about my Grampa, a fat wee Robin Red Breast bird shows up in the  and follows me about.  I like to think its him re-incarnated and he's visiting to make sure im doing it right image
