Butterfly Kisses

I remember this day...
a hot afternoon
driving down a dirt lane
beside the lake.
and suddenly,
Butterflies...
Everywhere.
It only takes a moment to
FOCUS
on the little things.

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
~Irish Blessing    

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter
&
A wonderful weekend!
