A day of forgotten lunches;
A visit by the plumber;
An emergency dog grooming ( he looks sorry, doesn’t he? );
And errands that took waaaay toooo loooong to accomplish.
Eh, not so great. Wanted to be writing to you and decorating for Christmas.
Decided to just put the lights on the tree and start dinner.
Then I saw it…
It opened slowly, revealing the pattern, vibrant color and beauty.
Never in all my trees, I mean years, have I had a butterfly emerge from the branches!
In the flutter of wings the annoyances of the day washed away.
With strands of lights, boxes, bins and a ‘to do list’ a mile long surrounding me there was a magical moment.
This tiny creature reminded me to take a breath and see all the magic around me no matter what the day brings.
(Also, confirmed my decision to go for a ‘woodland’ look this Christmas!)
