When I visited the inspiring butterfly conservatory in Key West, Florida I was in awe of the beauty and peace that surrounded me. I could have stayed there for hours- away from the outside world, lost in my thoughts. In the gift shop they had many colorful butterflies framed in glass boxes. Many butterflies don't live beyond a few days which is such a shame because their beauty is breathtaking. We wanted to buy a framed butterfly to take home as a rememberance. During my search I found this quote underneath a beautiful arrangement of about 10 butterflies.
It is written by Helen Keller- one of the most celebrated people to have lived.
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be
seen nor touched, but are felt in the heart."

I'm terrible at passing such things along, but I will try! I just posted today, but perhaps after all the Easter hoopla!

Wishing you oodles of baskets of blessings this weekend and always!

I did not know a butterfly's life was so short. That's really pretty sad considering how much work they have to do to get to the butterfly stage. :(
