My Special Butterfly,
My Special Sister
We decided to have some butterflies. Five caterpillars
came in the mail. They all turned into chrysalises
and one fell to the bottom. We tried to put it
back to the top, but it fell again.
And then one day it hatched, my special butterfly. It
had crooked wings but I love it the most. I have
five butterflies and I love them all.
I also have a special sister in heaven that had a broken
heart like the butterfly’s wings. Her name
was Gemma. I knew she was going to heaven before
my Mommy knew, but Daddy told Mommy not to listen to
me but to listen to God. I was four years old. I
remember when I brushed her hair. She only had
a little bit but she was so cute. I love my special
butterfly and I love my sister Gemma.
