Finding your wings

It is almost Christmas and it is never too early to say happy festive season moms. Observing the beautiful butterflies out here in the Karoo is breathtaking and the journey from caterpillar to Butterfly warms my heart. We are fortunate as moms that our children don’t find their wings so early, however the stages in this journey are quite representative of our own lives. Treasure your caterpillar mom, they will be a butterfly before you know it.
