Butterfly in Flight

Just when the caterpillar thought its life was over, 
it became a butterfly.

That has long been one of my favorite sayings. Sometimes life really seems to weigh heavy on a person. Nothing seems to be going right. Life is a challenge. Perhaps giving up feels like the only option.

But then, think! The caterpillar struggled, too, while fighting its way out of the cocoon. But then it grew its wings and now it is a beautiful butterfly that can fly!


Today begins a new challenge at One Stitch at a Time Challenge... a BUTTERFLY challenge!
