An eternal evergreen tree was given to us in David’s memory. We planted the tree at our property on Cape Cod. One day as I was gardening near David’s tree, a butterfly came and landed very close to me and stayed for about one minute. I looked at her carefully and noticed that both of her wings were damaged, one more than the other. Immediately I thought of David and then the thought hit me that the butterfly can still fly even with broken wings. I realized that I must pick up my broken wings and try to fly again even with the pain.
The butterfly in the photo also has broken wings and is still as beautiful as ever.
