I was asked, Where are your butterflies? I said to them, “They are somewhere sharing my joy.” Since I rarely go out of my house without a butterfly on me, I began to realize how important having joy is to my self, soul and spirit. I just wanted to write this one hundred words as a tribute to all the families who woke up this morning without joy. Why do we wake up and say that today is going to be better than ever before? I believe it is the gift of joy that we find daily with the butterflies.
I woke up at 03:00, looked out the window and found four inches and I really need you to understand that I will not be complaining and crying on your shoulders of heavy snows persons who look down on our barely iced streets.
Well I have already looked at every neighborhood in my city with all these facebook twitterings so you get no snow pictures from me today. Instead since it is a throw back Thursday and I have failed with the reblog Wednesday crowd. I will just rehash a poem that was published in Senior Magazine in 2005. I am going to tag it with everyone of the tags so if you get this message on a butterfly , write back and tell me how to do reblog Wednesday effectively. http://www.wyswoods.wordspress.com. Yet if I do not hear from anyone, I will “Surthrive” In the voice of my own self !
Yes I know that butterflies will emerge
And we will watch them move through the air
March 3, 2015 was my #BeWoW day as I stood in the Senate Library in Tennessee State Capitol Senate Room. Yes, we took the picture after everyone had left but it still was a great feeling to stand there. I was in town to talk to my Legislators about cancer Care and Cure. (note I do not cap cancer) It really is what gives me the feeling of Being a Wow Volunteer.
