Yesterday was a strange day.
After a moment of sunlight in the morning,
the day became gloomy and bitter cold.
I had a million errands to do,
worried about Libby
a new recipe to try.
By four o’clock PM, I was antsy and sad.
It is then when I grabbed my coat and took a walk.
A three mile walk.
It felt awesome and cleared my head.
When I arrived back at the cottage,
I stopped by the mail-box.
In the pile of catalogs and mail
I found a note….
a lovely note from a dear friend, very far away.
The paper is covered with filmy fabric,
much like butterfly wings.
The note was from our dear friend, Kevin.
Kevin, like so many of us had an interesting 2016.
He wrote, thanking us for friendship and love.
How on earth, did he know I needed that,
at the very moment I opened it?
I believe that is called…friendship.
Thank you Kevin.
Love you beyond butterfly wings.
