Shortly after a friend’s mother passed away, a yellow butterfly landed on her shoulder. I was inspired AND intrigued.
In an earlier blog, I posted a series of butterflies that I had been working on for a special project. Butterflies symbolize change and transformation. And in grand style, I might add.
The yellow butterfly symbolizes even more.
Don’t be fooled by the description of the yellow butterfly as the Common Butterfly with little unique markings. It is a symbol of hope and guidance.
And here is the goose bumpy part: it also means the soul is at peace.
In addition, the color yellow symbolizes optimism, energy and joy. If there are any words that describe my friend, it is these words. I am sure her mother was saying, “I am well and at peace,” as well as sending a message, “…don’t despair at my departure. Despair does not become you. Remain true to who you are because, I am singing in the sunshine wild and free, playing tag with the wind and watching over thee.
Thanks to my friend for sharing her story and inspiring me to create another greeting card.
Let us all be optimistic, full of energy and joyful.
