Ladybug's dream

The folds of a leaf provides a path for this ladybird beetle. The constantly shifting fabric that is our life provides a path for us. Some of the folds and shifts are in our control. Others are not.

I wrote earlier about the family friend who was facing the final days in his fight against bone marrow cancer. While he could not change the outcome, he made the most of that time encouraging our family to stay close and fully appreciate each other. He reached the end of his path yesterday morning, comfortable and at peace.

We will continue on that path.

James, this little ladybird beetle in a sea of green is quite breathtaking. My heart feels the pain of losing someone close, as I will attend a funeral tomorrow of a loved one.
Yes, we will continue on that path.
