A Little Blessing
For those that don't know the significance of the butterfly, to us, it's a big deal. Last summer when we lost Aleigha, we took Haley to get a "Lilly" (Haley's lamb blanket) for Aleigha. We found a purple one with a butterfly on it. We said that everytime we saw a butterfly, we could think of Aleigha.
Two days after the memorial service Haley, my mother-in-law, and myself went to a petting zoo. This was something to get our mind on something else and fun for Haley. As we were leaving, a yellow butterfly followed us from the back of the petting zoo to the parking lot. We knew this was a gift from God! It was AWESOME!
I wanted to plant something at our house that would attract butterflies, so I found out that this flower does. It was just one flower last summer and now it has multiplied. I have seen other butterflies on this but NEVER a yellow one. With it being only 8 days til we reach the one year anniversary of Aleigha's short time with us, this was a blessing that I needed this week!
