Butterfly Messengers

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower." ~Hans Christian Anderson

Signs signs everywhere the signs! Twice in the past two weeks butterfly messengers have appeared in my life. I had a dream two weeks ago about catching a butterfly. Walking into work the next day I nearly stepped on this butterfly I have in my hand. I was completely blown away, she's so beautiful. . .

Yesterday my friend Val left work, then came rushing back in a few min's later. She said, "OMG Carissa! I have something for you!!!" She was crazy giddy excited w/ her hands cupped all secretively, then wha-la -- I nearly cried when her hands opened! I saw another beautiful butterfly in HER hand! She found it while pumping gas at the gas station! My heart is completely melty, not only from the butterfly, but the sweetness of my friends!

I can't help but think all these butterflies are seriously trying to tell me something. All day today I thought about what "Gas Station + Butterfly = equals." I'm thinking it means gas up your tank + go!? I feel like I need to put my head down + do just that. I'm gonna to take a little break from the internet world this week + catch up on projects.

I started the girlie above + can't wait to finish her! Sorry the pic's kinda dark.

Sending Fluttering Motion to You!
