Butterfly Lands On My Hand

Butterfly Lands On My Hand

In Nov 2012 I was hiking with two friends out in Strawberry, AZ. They were ahead of me and I saw a couple of butterflies as I meandered near

a creek bed.

One of them landed on my left hand. It was such a special moment for me!

My friends noticed I was far behind and came back to check on me. He grabbed his camera, but the butterfly seemed very content to sit with me.

I had just gone through a divorce the year before,
and saw it as something special and positive! A little reminder of wonderful things headed my way for my life!

Butterfly Encounters Hold Special Meanings
by: Sally

Thank you Rebekah for sharing your wonderful story. I have noticed that every time butterflies decide to pay us a visit, there seems to always be a special occasion to remember them by.

It was like that with me when I started my life over after a long relationship. We were walking in our favorite park. My daughter and grandchildren were walking just ahead of me.

Then out of nowhere a mourning butterfly began flying close by. On a whim I put out my hand and he landed there to just say Hi.

I was the one with the camera so I quickly snapped his photo before he flew away.

For me this visit was a sign of new beginnings and a new life ahead.

Thank you again, Rebekah for your lovely story.
