Something happened today that was shocking and totally awesome. I was washing dishes when I reached over for more dish liquid. Sitting on my black rock was a Monarch butterfly. This is a picture of it on my light over the sink. (excuse the dust on the lamp)
It was so shocking for me to see it because I have no idea how a Monarch butterfly got in my house. To me butterflies have always been a sign of hope, like Cardinals and rainbows.
I caught the butterfly and released it out the front door. My daughter captured the whole thing on my digital camera, which has a 60 second video feature.
There is a Native American legend that says, if you have a secret wish , capture a butterfly and whisper your wish in its ear. Release the butterfly, and it will carry your wish to the Great Spirit, where it will surely come true. I have to say I made a wish. ~Nita~
