Butterflies and Birthdays

I have always loved butterflies.  There is an aura around them of something so magical.  I think my version of Heaven would be a garden filled with butterflies, of all different sizes and colors.  For my birthday this year I had the opportunity to visit the Chicago Botanical Gardens and see the beautiful butterfly exhibit.

 It was inspiring to see the beauty, joy, and resilience in the butterflies with broken wings who were still fluttering from flower to flower. Sometimes life can make us feel like we are flying with a broken wing, but the ability to find joy in the face of adversity is truly a beautiful gift.
