When times get tough, I always go back to this story I came upon a while ago.
A young girl once found a butterfly cocoon. Excited, the girl visited the cocoon daily, to watch the moment when the butterfly could break free.
One day a small crack appeared, and “baby butterfly” was coming to life. It struggled, trying to force itself through the little hole. With a pair of scissors, the girl snipped the cocoon open to set the butterfly free.
The butterfly sprawled out, and crawled, taking tiny steps but couldn’t take off to the sky. Its wings never developed.
What the girl failed to see was the natural evolution of life. We will move beyond our grief into a place of understanding the nature of life.
