Thank you to my Mother Brenda for sharing this coin with me so I may share the love it brings to others....

Monarch butterflies have always held a special place in my heart. Growing up my grandmother would raise them from their caterpillar state, and once they hatched from their cocoons she would let me gently hold them in the palm of my hand until their wings would dry so I could watch them soar into the sky to their next adventure! My mother, Brenda, and I have held fond memories of butterflies ever since. As I grew older, the butterflies symbolism grew even stronger for me. The idea of transformation and growth is something I strive to do on a daily basis. Understanding challenges are placed upon us for reasons that we may never fully understand, we fight unknowing for the future. The same that a butterfly fights through transformation for its wings to fly.

I've decided to share this butterfly with my co-worker and friend Kristen! During the few years I've known her, Kristen has proven that kindness and friendship does exist! It's been awhile since I've meant someone who is as positive and selfless as she. Words can not express how thankful I am to have met her and to have her in my life. I wish everything in the world for her. She is truly the definition of unconditional love and friendship.

I love you Kristen... and your acts of kindness will never go unnoticed.

Your wings are growing beautifully... get ready for flight!
