Count your blessings!
A few weeks ago I was feeling very down because of my hip, leg, neck and nerve damage, like why keep trying thoughts. Not my normal. I forced myself onto the bike and as I sat woe is me, this hurts, this sucks, I looked over at my garden and saw two butterflies entangled in a mid air dance around my blood orange tree. I stopped to videotape and captured one of them still dancing. That moment gave light to my heart and my mind to be above myself, be beyond my pain and think more about the beauty in life. Well.... yesterday, I noticed 4 sluggish looking creatures chilling on separate leaves in my blood orange tree! Those butterflies were mating and now I get to witness the beauty in seeing these caterpillars become pupas and blossom into butterflies. I guess we should all count our blessings where they come, no matter how big or how small. Have a great day!
