My story

I started out in life as a little Caterpillar.
Learning every thing the hard way
By trial and error.

Then I became part of a family unit where I was in charge.
But some one forgot to give me the manual on how to live life.
I did not even get a crystal ball, to see how things will turn out.
So I made it up on my own,
Sure I made plenty of mistakes as we all do.
I raised my little caterpillars the best I could.
And they turned out to be amazing people.
With there own caterpillars to tend to.

But then a number of years ago I went in to my cocoon.
This was a learning process.

And this brought about my wings.
I am now a butterfly free to enjoy all life has to offer.
The last 2 year have been awesome.
I have flown to new heights.

But now I feel a new change coming.
As today I turned 49
Will my wings grow bigger ?
I have been in deep thought the last few weeks.
I had my hair cut and looked in the mirror.

Who is that person I see ?
And where is the window cleaner ?
Surly that is not me.
I now have inner wisdom.
And know it is time to become complete.
Will I find new wings ?
Will I soar with the eagle?
And dance with the angles & fairies in the garden.
I have had my life packed away for years.
And will wait till we see if we are moving in august.
Then I will build my enchanted garden.
And enjoy heaven on earth again.
