I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Happiest of days to you, dear Butterfly!

What very wise words to live by. Living to love is the only way to be...

Incidentally, you share your day with another very incredible person...my own daughter, who is 16 today!

That is lovely, love that image there.
I am laughing, because I have been making my kids laugh, and sometimes they cry, and I cry with them...sometimes.

Dear Butterflies,
Not a day goes by I don't think of you, and wish you peace. No doubt you have raised a fine young man (even if he does eat meat :)
You have had such a journey, and so it continues... but with your love and faith, I know you are Ok. God is good, and helps in so many ways.
