These butterflies just emerged from their cocoons a few days ago. They were given to Jackie by a neighbor, and yesterday we set them free. It was symbolic~ she has always loved butterflies :)
When I held mine and let it go, I imagined I was letting go of so many worries and hindrances, letting them fly away from me....
and afterward, I felt a little lighter.
(We also each made a wish when we let ours go, but I never tell wishes, until they've come true...)
