~“We view the delicately beautiful butterfly … in the moment forgetting, all too easily, the changes of growth it went through to create it’s ultimate beauty.”
“To truly see our world for all its potential
we must cease our inclination to judge.
~ Both ourselves and others.
Only then will we emerge like the butterfly from it’s final cocoon!
Open and aware to all the beautiful and rich possibilities of our tomorrows
… discovering to our surprise
they are available to us … today!”
Penny L Howe, 2013
~ Have an excellent weekend ahead, don’t work too hard, love well and take a little time to enjoy each day!

I’m with Bulldog. I think I am still in the caterpillar stage as well. 🙂 A most beautiful post dear friend.
Thank you. There are a lot of us caterpillars roaming around out there, right now! Actually LuAnn, a very pleasing thought, now that I think about it! 🙂
This is really a beautiful post, Penny, along with many wise words. I just love butterflies, too! Hope you’re well and happy! 🙂 xxx
Hi Lauren, thank you. Yes, butterflies are wonderful aren’t they! I’m fine, though very busy right now, but all in a good way! Hope you’re having an excellent week my friend! 🙂 xo
Good to hear, Penny! I’m sorry for missing many of your posts…I have begun a publishing project, which is taking me away from reading other blogs, but I’ll see you soon! Take care! xoxo 🙂
Excellent to hear Lauren, no worries about visiting, just as you can. I’m hoping not to cut back myself, as have several “irons in the fire” right now, also. Good luck with your publishing project! You’re talented, so I have no doubt but that it will turn out well for you! 🙂 xo
I think I’m still in the Caterpillar stage… LOL
Me too, seriously Bulldog, perhaps in 20 or 30 years I may move to the next stage of development (of course then I’d have to actually grow up) I like that you’re still a kid at heart! 🙂 xx
Great one about being brave to emerge to your full potential and the fortitude to spread your wings and fly. Excellent hon xxx
Thank you Roxi, so much xoxo
I have really enjoyed reading

I hope that your Monday has been
a very nice one Penny 🙂
It was Andro, thank you. And as already mentioned I hope your Tuesday is a very good one for you! 🙂
