Empowerment Project--Butterflies in Belize

This gorgeous piece of artwork was created by Star.

Isn't it lovely?  I want to hang it on my wall.

The wording on the image says:

"just when the caterpillar
thought the world was over
it became a butterfly'

'beautiful and graceful
varied and enchanting
small but approachable
butterflies lead you
to the sunny side of life
everyone deserves a little
sunshine"


Butterflies are high on my list of favorite creatures and they are a fantastic metaphor for overcoming trauma, and finding happiness. I'm so grateful to Star for sharing her talent and positive message with us.  I know I'm smiling!

Thanks, Star!
