Peacock butterfly

With all the lovely weather that we are having, it means that we are seeing lots of insects including butterflies.

I have received some more very sad news today about a lovely man that I nursed when he had his heart transplant 30 years ago last August. Sadly he suffered from cancer and passed away last Friday. I was so upset when I read the letter from his wife who said that he died peacefully with her and his 2 children beside him. I just thought this butterfly could wing its way up to heaven as I'm sure that's where he has gone to. He was such a lovely kind and caring man and when my colleague and friend Helen and I went to the Transplant Games, they would not let us pay the extortionate prices for food and brought us a picnic to eat with them each day. I must admit it did make me cry when I read the letter but Jean his wife said not to be sad but thankful for all the years he had.

It seems that last week was a terrible week for lovely people dying and I'm sure I am not alone in mourning these people. Take care everyone and enjoy each day as we don't know when it will be our last.
Well captured!

Sadly, there's going to be a lot more bad news for many people before this is over.
All we can do, is keep posting photos in the hope they will help people to forget their troubles and put a smile back on their faces.

We have never been more aware of our own mortality than in these days. I am sorry for your news. This is a lovely capture of the butterfly - a symbol perhaps that your friend has escaped the restrictions of his earthly life and is now beautifully free.
