Review by Lyndee:
There are many things that come to mind when I think of loved ones I have lost but there are two people in particular that always come to mind when I see butterflies or hear wind chimes. Every time I hear a windchime blowing in a soft breeze I think of days spent at Robert and Donna’s. Now, in the 3 years since his passing, every time I hear that beautiful noise I think of Grandpa Robert in heaven and that he is saying hello. When I see a butterfly, I think of my cousin Kirk.
I’ve been keeping an eye out for a windchime I could turn into a project recently. I found one the other day at Dollar General. It was marked down to $3 but I didn’t realize until I checked out that it was clearance more and was only 90 cents! Hello bargain, come home with me please! I bought the windchime which was a little cheesy but I knew I could make it work.
I kept the dangling butterfly for Kirk and added a picture of Robert’s 4020 tractor parked in front of the church the morning of his funeral. This way, when I hear my windchimes I will be able to think of both of them and smile. It’s a priceless joy that cost me less than a dollar and took about 2 minutes to do.
