I am blessed to have butterfly friends in my life.  They bring beauty to all those around them.  You can’t help to notice when they are fluttering around because they are graceful (grace-filled), light and ethereal.  It’s a pleasure to sit with them, if even for a few moments.  When they leave, I always feel better because of the minutes shared.

I also have some mosquitoes in my life.  They are the ones who sting a bit.  Their presence is not always welcomed and sometimes they may say something that is totally untrue, but it still hurts.  And, there are also times when they say something that is true….and that stings as well.  These are the people who, after they leave, I breathe a sign of relief.  But then, the word or comment stays with me for a while, like the itch that is the result of the mosquito bite.

And then there are the tick-people.  These are the ones that suck the very life from me.  They attach and won’t seem to let go.  They bring me down with their energy zapping abilities.  They are toxic to me.  Those ticks bring nothing good into my life.

Today I will look for the butterflies……

And, I must ask myself…..which one am I????
