I was sitting on my couch last night thinking about this blog post, and I started laughing so hard when the title of the post reminded me of a very early childhood TV show. please tell me someone out there remembers Reading Rainbow??
I immediately found the YouTube video and sang it for Billy, then sent a text to both of my sisters which turned into a full-on 80s TV show theme song sing-a-long.
“butterfly in the sky…I can go twice as high!” anyone?
now I really do have a point to this post…maybe.
as I mentioned on Monday, we spent a couple of hours on the roof Sunday afternoon into the evening. there were a handful of beautiful butterflies relaxing in the sun.
our building has 18 stories which Billy says is approximately 180 feet high + the added height to get to the roof. that is a long way for a butterfly to travel upwards, right? do they know where they are going as they climb higher and higher in the air?
I think it’s pretty incredible that in all of their delicateness, they find their way to our rooftop. they make a happy home amongst the blooming flowers and they have the most spectacular views of the city.
so, how did they decide to make their way to the roof?
I think sometimes we have to take a leap of faith, even if we don’t know where we’ll end up. if that little butterfly can make it almost 200 feet in the air, what can we do?
are you headed upwards in an area of your life?
p.s. sorry if you got this post twice in your email/reader – little technical difficulty!
