Fly ... Be Free!
This is a painting by the artist, Melissa Harris. I love butterflies. Seeing them fluttering all around a woman with outstretched arms signified freedom to me. The first time I saw this painting, was in my friend, Karen's office. I knew that we'd be instant friends. Karen is another one of my special angels. I don't know where I would've been without her. She saw me at my worst. Thanks to her, I found my inner will to survive. I was a shell of a person when we met, going through so much all at once. I didn't know how I'd muddle through it all. Karen was there as a mother-sister-friend to guide me in the right direction, and for that, I am eternally grateful. This painting symbolized my re-birth ... I was letting go of an old life, old beliefs, and was preparing to live my authentic life. Thank you so much, Karen. I love you!
