At that very moment, a beautiful monarch butterfly swooped out of nowhere and I was instantly reminded that someone once told me that when you see a butterfly it is a sign from a loved one who's passed that they are near you and watching over you. As this thought rumbled in my head the butterfly got closer and closer until it very nearly touched my face. Its wings could have very well grazed my cheek. The moment was quick but it made me smile and my heart was instantly happy. What sweet comfort I got from the butterfly's kisses.
After the butterfly flew off I was left wondering if it was a sweet coincidence or if the saying was true and one of my loved ones was with me, being so bold as to kiss my cheek. I like to believe it is true and that those who aren't with us still watch us. And sometimes, even if with subtle signs, they want us to feel their presence.
Do you believe that our loved ones send us signs of their presence, that they watch over us and love us even after death?
