Butterflies are one of the most fascinating creatures on Earth. Acknowledging their metamorphosis brings comfort when pondering Life and Death.
One of the most fascinating stories I have ever read is by Elizabeth Kubler Ross. Her story is not about butterflies. It is about children drawing pictures of butterflies. There were many on the walls in concentration camps. It is a fascinating story and I encourage everyone to read it.
Today I received an email from Tara. She is requesting a custom beaded butterfly in memory of her sister.
I started making this butterfly shortly after my dad passed away. I miss him. I need to bead.When I found the butterfly resting peacefully in the tin, it brought a sense of comfort over me. I left her there so many years ago and she has been waiting quietly for me to return.
Soon she will fly.
When her wings are finished I will say good bye.
