Mom loved butterflies. I left a yellow craft butterfly hanging on the light string in the room she laid in at home.
Now, every time I see a butterfly, I will remember her but seeing a yellow one will assure me, she is with me at that moment in time.

I know she will never be further away than my thoughts.
I'm sending my love to you now and always,
