Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate


I find butterflies very delicate creatures. They are beautiful, fluttering about.

Apart from physically being delicate, I think the many different things that butterflies symbolize to different people is extremely delicate.

To me, it’s a stage in life. And I have mentioned it before in a previous blog post. When we enter stages of hardship, it is our cocoon phase, and when it passes we will emerge as beautiful butterflies. When my sister and I first had the conversation that sparked that analogy it was a ridiculous idea that we laughed about. But now, after we put more thought into it, it ended up being an important comparison.
