The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own.
- Lao Tzu

Our loved ones -
whether by blood, by marriage, or by choice -
are delicate treasures.
If we hold them too close, they break -

Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.

in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.
