Hanging out with a sign from Heaven

Landing on my fingertip

Landing on my fingertip

On May 30, 2018, my husband and I were walking along our driveway looking at flowers in bloom.

We had a butterfly that started circling around us. He finally landed on my hand and then he landed on my phone so I took a selfie of him.

He even landed on my husband. He came back and landed on my hand again.

He sat on my hand the entire time and I walked 100 yards or more back to our front door. Before I went inside, I sat the butterfly on the dog to see if he would fly away and he didn’t. So three member of our family got to experience this butterfly.

I’ve always heard that when butterflies land on you it’s a loved one paying you a visit from heaven. I just lost my niece two days after Christmas last year and I found out from my sister that she loved butterflies, especially the orange ones. I had no idea my niece loved butterflies so much.

My sister is building a memorial garden for my niece and is planning on releasing 112 butterflies for everybody that’s attending the memorial.

I truly believe that it was my niece coming to hang out with me for a while because this butterfly stayed with me for about 10 minutes.

The only reason we parted ways was because it started to rain. If it had not started raining, I would’ve stayed out there with the butterfly as long as I could.

Rest In Peace my beautiful niece, Taylor Nicole. I love and miss you.

I'm in heaven

We lost our son five days ago, suddenly. A brown butterfly landed on my right hand. I feel he was saying that he's okay.
