The big blue butterfly

The other day I had the most amazing experience with a butterfly. I have not seen very many butterflies this year. Although the ones that I have seen have always come at times of need, times when I needed comfort or a sign.

On Saturday I was going outside to wait for my sister, brother in law and my God daughter to come over for the afternoon. I walked to the area between our house and my neighbour/good friends house. I don't like calling them my neighbours because they have become more like family to us. They have been a constant source of support during the past months. The are between our houses is quite big so we designated it as our little piazza. It has a little table with chairs, flower pots, herb pots and tiki lights. We often sit there at night and have a coffee, beer, or just chat. Well on that particular Saturday a big blue butterfly came for a visit and was not scared of by me. It flew around my head, my arms, my shoulders and just kept circling me. I have never seen a butterfly that was so comfortable being so close to people. It stayed to welcome my sister and her family, and even posed for pictures. I have not seen the butterfly since. The beautiful part is that inside one of the flower pots in the piazza I placed a big blue butterfly and said that this is so Isabella is always here with us. I guess that Isabella wanted to make her presence known. She truly is the best! Thank you Bella, mommy loves you.

I'm so glad we were there to experience that with you. It was so amazing how that butterfly looked like it was dancing around your fingers and arms. Bella has the most perfect ways of connecting with us and I am always open to her next sign. I love you so much sweet Bella and you are always on my mind and in my heart.

What a beautiful post. You have such a strong connection with Bella that will be there forever. Signs of her being with us are all around. She is truly the best!

Your little gathering spot sounds so beautiful. Enjoy your time with your neighbours and friends there as often as possible. I'm sure it makes Bella so happy to see you out there.

Love you,
Angie
