Sue's Silver and Paua Shell Butterfly Pin

The other day a little package arrived on my door step. It was from Sue. In this little package of love was 3 very special pieces of jewellery. Her instructions were "Give these to some families who need them"

What I admire about Sue is the way she gives.

After Sue shared a special poem with me about a butterfly moment I decided to create a memorial image. Below is what I came up with. I have added this image to my butterfly gallery. Out of all my gallery butterflies this is my absolute favourite and to celebrate this new addition to the gallery Sue and I are holding a joint giveaway.

Sue sent me this gorgeous Silver and Paua Shell Butterfly Pin in her package of love to giveaway.

I thought it would be a lovely idea to give away the pin with a high resolution jpeg Butterfly Moment and some sand from Christian's Seashore.

If you would like to enter this giveaway please leave us a comment here on my blog with your choice of name for the butterfly image.

For all of our facebook friends you can leave a comment at Sue's and my facebook page. Yes that means you can enter twice!

We will be giving some Butterfly Moment Jpegs away as runner ups! We will be randomly picking the winners.

Good Luck everyone!

Small Miracles Blog Hop - Celebrating Hope

Franchesca wrote that sometimes Heaven seems so distant. I have struggled with this for years.

But lately...

I find that the biggest miracles come from the smallest things.

I find them in the intricate beauty of the tiniest flower.

I find them in the sound of the beautiful birds singing to each other each morning at the park across the road from my house.

I find them in the laughter of my daughters, usually as I am trying to get some desperately needed sleep, I always end up attending festival of laughter with the head lining acts being my two youngest tinkerbells.

But mostly, I find the biggest miracles in the sounds and sparkles of the ocean at sunset each night. I feel the most pure energy consume my body as I step barefoot into the sand of that gorgeous beach. My worries are gone. Everything is perfect just for that little time when day transitions into night.

What small or big miracles do you find hope in? If you have a story to share or you are looking for hope on this road of grief visit Franchesca's Blog. There is a whole heaps or little miracles emerging there :)

We are all connected...

It doesn't matter that we may be separated by states or oceans. Our children have connected us in the most magical way possible.

Although you may feel like you are walking this path alone, you are not. For we all stand on the same earth and we all watch the same sun set.

We are all together in spirit, and that for me is enough.

Thank you my friends who I have not yet met in person. You hold a special place in my heart.
