Consider the Butterfly


"consider the butterfly. Wrapped tightly in its cocoon, the developing chrysalis must struggle with all its might to break its confinement. The butterfly might think, "Why must I suffer so? Why cannot I simply, in the twinkling of an eye, become a butterfly?" such thoughts would be contrary to the Creator's design. The struggle to break out of the cocoon develops the butterfly so it can fly. Without that adversity, the butterfly would never have the strength to achieve its destiny. It would never develop the strength to become something extraordinary."

Elder Wirthlin

my friend Krystal reminded me of this tonight…..

Shelly, this is beautiful! Bella is working hard to be the beautiful butterfly she will soon be (hopefully out of the hospital)
Jacob and I were doing the sign for butterfly today and it reminds me of Bella. We love you and are proud of you.
