I had to prepare a talk for a mother daughter tea several years ago. Well I am not a speach writer. Someone else in my group wrote it and I had to deliver it. Not in my comfort zone and I so had butterflies. I think it flopped, but I tried and that is what I think God wanted.

What gives me butterflies is stories of the love families have amongst themselves. Since the death of my parents I have been alone at holidays...we do get together for Xmas Eve but other than that notta! I so miss getting together. My one brother went to CA and the other brother is hen pecked....I do have my handicapped sister with me but other than that it's usually just myself, my husband and my sister so when I hear of all the stories of people being close there families, I get the joy and butterflies of happiness that someone has family!

Maren, Beautiful Cards!!

What give me butterflies is watching my DD with special needs excel & grow each day. Also watching her friends & the things they do & say.
They recently all comforted my DH on his loss of his brother. They were so comforting to him at a Special Olympics game. It took the pain away for a short time. These individuals give us butterflies.

Thanks for reading my post.
