The other day, my dog of many years started showing signs of sickness. She was old, and the sickness hit her very hard and very quickly. My mother and I were driving her to the vet when the strangest thing happened — In the middle of the road it looked like there was a Clouded Sulphur butterfly, and it nearly flew in the car through my open window. Instead, it fluttered near the window opening for about 7 seconds before we parted our ways.
Just a few days later, my dog became so sick that we had to put her down. I loved her so. But today as I was walking to class another (or perhaps the same) Clouded Sulfur accompanied me on my walk. It just fluttered by me for a few moments before we parted ways. It may seem insignificant, but it was what I needed. Every time I see this butterfly I will remember my beautiful dog, Rozie.
