Life is short.
Too short for some.
The butterfly effect is the idea that when a butterfly flaps its wings it will move the air molecules and that will move other molecules and that can eventually create a storm thousands of miles away.
Those who left this world too soon are still with us because of the air molecules they moved. We may not be able to see the impact they had. But air molecules keep moving forever.
They live on through the lives they touched. The hearts they helped. The smiles they shared. The laugher they gave. The love they lived and shared. .
My brother had an infectious laugh and dangerous smile. 😏 He was gifted at making others happy. Those are the air molecules that I hope I can move as well as he did. That’s how he inspires me years after he is gone. This way, he is never truly gone, he is always in my heart and moves the wind molecules of my actions.
They don’t leave us.
They leave us a gift.
A gift in the whisper of a
butterfly’s wind. 🦋
Photo: I found this photo of my older brother Darrin from a time long ago. It was another butterfly surprise as I didn’t know I still had it. It’s been almost 10 years. But I still hear his laughter and I am still inspired by the way he lived and loved.
Next time you feel a light breeze at the back of your ear, that’s your loved ones letting you know, everything is happening as it is supposed to and they are still there with you.
