A Butterfly Pause

I paused for a butterfly today. I literally paused for a butterfly while driving. I wasn't driving very fast to begin with. I was approaching the chapel and was in the parking lot when it fluttered in front of my car. Because I was going so slow to begin with I thought there was no harm in stopping to let it fly on by me. No, I am not a crazy bug lover but I would like to think that Aven would have liked to see it flutter away so, I paused for a butterfly today :)

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. 

 ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
