I Want To Be a Butterfly

I’ve been a caterpillar for the past ten years – happily munching my way through life. I’ve lived in my little family cocoon quite content and even getting a little fat.

Now it’s time to shed the chrysalis and spread my wings, as we head off into pastures new. A new life, a new country – retirement.

I have new-found respect for caterpillars as they metamorphose into one of nature’s beauties and hope I find the courage to do the same and fly off into the distance.

    I’ve been in my cocoon for the past year as I’ve been undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Soon I will be a butterfly, soon!
