I spotted a miniature angel face Rose plant ,similar to the one I bought for my mother-in-law, this time last year. Not being a common color, I snatched it up immediately.
I had forgotten that we had one crysalid in the terrarium, wintering over.
When I got up today, I found this:
I had to do a double take......
It was the first Christmas we were celebrating without my mother-in-law......ever....could it be that knowing how difficult it has been this holiday season that we were given a sign that all was well?
I can tell you that we all feel at peace tonight......the end of a year with more changes than we had ever experienced before...and while there were many changes, like that butterfly, we survived and even experienced a radical change in the way we view things...Life will do that to you....
From everyone at The Strawberry Mallard...Me,Becky, Angus, Macy, Princess, Bootsie,Lucky, and our in the crawl space kitty, Blackie aka Audrey Hepburn( another tale or tail for another year ;o)..we hope that the new year will bring you peaceful growth...like that butterfly.
