Monarch Butterfly on Wildflower in The Park

Monarch Butterfly on Wildflower in The Park

My daughter passed away two days ago. I was outside my sister-in-law's house, walking around the pool, thinking about my beautiful daughter and her young kids, when a monarch butterfly appeared from nowhere and landed on my wrist. It stayed there for a long while, then flew away.


I walked to the other side of the pool and the butterfly came after me, landed in exactly the same spot, and kept slowly flapping its wings.

When it flew away I walked back to where I was previously. The butterfly again came after me and landed on my shoulder. It flapped its wings a couple of times and went away.

Note from Sally:

Thank you Yara for sharing your lovely touching story. I've taken the liberty to add a picture of a Monarch Butterfly at the top of your story to share in your memories.

I send blessings and prayers in your time of such great sadness. Thank you again.
