Positive nuggets: Butterfly

Nugget means something small but valuable or excellent.

Saw this butterfly in front of our house one sunny day. I can’t think of a good story to write about it so I just lifted a poem to tell something about this creature. Read along.
Butterfly Wishes
Yesterday a butterfly
Came floating gently through the sky.
He soared up through the atmosphere
Then drifted close enough to hear.

I said, “I’d love to fly with you
And sail around the way you do.
It looks like it would be such fun
To fly up toward the summer sun.

But I have not your graceful charm.
I haven’t wings, just these two arms.
I’ve been designed to walk around.
My human feet must touch the ground.

Then magically he spoke to me
and told me what his wish would be.

He said, “What I’d love most to do
Is walk upon God’s Earth with you,
To squish it’s mud between my toes
Or touch my finger to my nose.

I’d love just once to walk around
With human feet to touch the ground,
But I have not two legs that swing,
I haven’t arms, just these two wings.”

And so we went our separate ways
In wonder and surprise.
For we’d both seen God’s precious gifts
Through someone else’s eyes.

Positive nuggets

Nugget means something small but valuable or excellent. 

My son won the essay writing contest during the Math-Science Week this week.

My daughter was commended by her teacher for being a ‘good writer’ when they were made to write a short essay about the GSIS Museum.

My last nugget include this series of drawings created by my daughter. I’m really excited to share her artwork here.


…and she also did the layout of my new header at Mom writes for a cause. Thank you sweetie-pie! Both of you made mommy and daddy proud.

*My daughter wishes to enroll in a writing and art class. I’ll pray that we’ll have enough budget for that or we find a program/school with minimal fee.
