The Master`s Garden
Stratford- upon - Avon .
A spider " floating " in it`s web ...
Red Admiral butterfly ....
I was reminded of story i was told -
and how it related to my early teenage years .
On feeling "different " and an outcast , lonely
and no real direction in my life ...
A butterfly had just emerged from a chrysalis -
having spent time inside during it`s transformation .
Spreading it`s wings in the sun . Another cocoon was
nearby - not yet opened - and it seemed to be
struggling to break out . It was helped out into
the world - by someone opening the cocoon - and it
once it opened and spread it`s wings .. it
turned out to be a moth ....
During difficult times - we can rest and receive
support from others ... You are an individual
and unique in your own way - whatever you
look like on the outside and feel in the inside .
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need-
to make us grow stronger . If we were allowed to go
through life without any obstacles , it would
cripple us . We would not be as strong as we could
have been - and we could never fly .
