The Butterfly Bench - A Message from the Angels

The angels guided me to the perfect bench for Mom's memorial garden spot.  Years ago I fell in love with a butterfly bench at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Virginia.  It was situated in a perfect place, the butterfly garden.  I'd forgotten about it until I spotted one while surfing the net for an arbor.  Butterflies remind me of our own metamorphosis, how like the caterpillar we humans are destined for greatness, spreading our wings to take flight in our new light body as we are freed from the tight physical cocoon.

I learned a valuable lesson when assembling the simple bench.  It had only five parts: two wings, the body, the seat, and the antennas.  But when it was almost finished, the seat seemed to be the wrong size. It just wouldn't fit.  We were about to pack it up and send it back to the company when inspiration came. Was the head facing the wrong direction?  We turned it around, and everything came together easily just as it should.

The angel message was an important one.  Things appear to be straight away and simple, but unless your looking in the right direction, you can't make it happen, the pieces simply will not fit.  Look forward and forget the past.

Enjoy your day with the Angels and try to spend some time in nature, even if its simply noticing the trees and flowers while you are about your daily business.

Love and blessings,
