Perfect Moment Monday - Butterfly

I was sitting on my patio when a beautiful butterfly flitted over and landed on the ground next to me. I tried to take its photo, but he moved too quickly. I noticed his flight was erratic, and when he once again landed next to me, I took a closer look....

One of his little wings was malformed. He was no less beautiful, but he was struggling. But still going, doing what he needed to do to make it through his day. And all I could think was, "This is us....this is what IF is like. We LOOK normal. We are still beautiful. But something is just not quite right. You can't tell unless you pay attention. And we just keep going, pushing through the challenges, doing what we need to do to get by. We are butterflies."

This is one of my favorite artists, and a song about being a slightly damaged butterfly who is no less beautiful, and who has the best friend in the whole world...this community is full of butterflies and all the friends we could hope for. Happy Perfect Moment Monday.
