Saving the Butterfly!

I Like my garden and this year have spent alot of time in it. I love the colours, love the peace and quiet I can enjoy as I potter around (no I'm not 80 years of age!) picking weeds, mowing the lawn or just admiring the colours in all the shrubs and flowers which are blossoming at the moment.

But I've noticed in the last few days how many butterflies I've had occassion to save. You know where they wander into the shed or into the garage or into the house and flutter frantically at a window trying to get out.

Funny thing is though I save three from my garden shed today. Cupped the first one in my hands as it fluttered against the window and released it well away from the shed. Closed the shed door to make sure it didn't fly back in. A few minutes later I went back into the shed and there was another butterfly fluttering against the window. And so the second mercy mission began. As before I cupped the butterfly in my hand and released it well away from the shed. But this time I had a quick look around the shed to make sure there were not other captive butterflies in there.

You've guessed it, 5 minutes later I could see another butterfly fluttering inside the she trying to get out.

So has someone given me mission in life to save the butterfly? Is it the same butterfly? Is there some beautiful woman from AdultFriendFinder transforming herself into a butterfly just to spy on Macker?

Whatever! It's nice to save a butterfly and everytime I released one from captivity I thought how nice it would be if someone could just pick me up in the gentleness of their hands and release me!

Gosh darn, ya figured it out. It was me, trying to spy on you, watching you putter around. Thankyou for saving me 3 times. It was a test. Now you may make one wish and it will be granted.

You know how I feel about butterflies. I too believe that they are a sign from God.....sometimes for healing and sometimes just to let you know that everything that is about to happen is going to be alright. Thanks for saving them Macker!

That's such a lovely thought. Saving Butterflies is a pleasure but it will be an even greater pleasure now that I know it pleases you
