Thank you friends and family...
...for your prayers and thoughts for my son and me, as well as the Haedrick family.
July 4th a beautiful creature left our lives and went to God's garden to grace them with her wonderful spirit. Taylor, my son's girlfriend, was the sunflower and the butterfly all in one amazing package. The beauty of the sun's reflection on a sunflower and the grace and joy of the butterfly. She passed away in my son's arms loosing a battle with illness that left us all speechless.

S.C Lourie at Butterfly and Pebble described what I have
learned this summer about me.
This summer I learned most of the lessons about myself through the interactions I had with others.
My co-workers, friends, and even the fellow shoppers at Trader Joe's. I know I am a bookworm who would rather spend my free time in the summer ~ curled up in a cool place with a book. I have done that enough to get my prize at the library reading program for summer. BUT...I have made myself get out and I have invited people into my nest. This summer I reach out of my bubble of comfort.
I have also been going to counseling. This week I am to begin a program called "Brain Spotting". I still don't know what that is, but the internet and my therapist assure me that it will help with anxiety and PTSD.

Grief will have it's unpleasant cycle, but our strength is in the Lord of the Butterfly and the Sunflower.
