Our loved ones -
whether by blood, by marriage, or by choice -
are delicate treasures.

the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.

which are usually judgmental people ...
we should really surround ourselves with the ones
that adore us and believe in the highest of us.
