Symbolic Gifts

I was catching up on my blogger buddies posts today and found an awesome one that I want you to read. It is by my buddy over at Easy Giving 101. Her post is all about Symbolic giving and you must go there and read it. The gift that was my favorite was this one: "Butterflies are also symbolic of life metamorphosis, transformation, and hope. A good remembrance of how death is only our gateway to immortality, a transformation to a new way of living or existing. Butterflies are joyous because they represent resurrection and have such a happy, busy way of life." I will probably wear a butterfly everyday for the rest of my life. I have always loved them....and now...they are a connection with my father. Go read her blog...I promise you won't regret it.

Hi Karen, lovely to be quoted by you, I am so glad you will adopt the butterfly as a daily companion. My very dear friends Cheryl and Diane have both lost a child and are surrounded by butterflies in all forms. Please let me know if I can send a butterfly your way.

thankyou, Starry

I have always loved butterflies and appreciate the symbolism you wrote about.
I plant flowers that attract butterflies and birds and bees, and of course, don't use pesticides cuz I do love my flying visitors.

Sending hugs & love your way!
