Watching Over Their ‘Little Butterfly’
(Submitted by Stephanie from Florida)

I was never really interested in butterflies until the day my grandma and uncle started calling me their little butterfly. My uncle was diagnosed with lung cancer and died when I was 14. Four years later my grandma passed away from a heart attack.

I dedicated my quinceañera theme to my uncle who passed.

3 years after my grandma passed I decided to get a tattoo in remembrance of the two most important people in my life.

A couple months after, I noticed that for every significant moment in my life, or when I was just about to give up on everything, a butterfly would pass by me and just fly around me.

Now almost everyday no matter where I am or what time of day it is I see a butterfly and know it’s my grandma and uncle watching over me and making sure I don't give up.
