美文:一只小小的蝴蝶

课件简介

It was a sweltering Spring day.

The temperatures felt more like July than May.

A thunderstorm had passed over earlier

but now the clouds were clearing

and the sun had returned.

Steam was coming off the wet sidewalk

as I parked my car next to the meter

and tossed a quarter into it.

I headed into the local thrift store to buy my son a shirt.

The air conditioning in there was a welcome relief from the heat outside.

After I made my purchase

I walked back out into the heat.

I got in my car but had to wait to pull out

because of all the cars lined up at the red stop light.

I looked out of my car window

and saw something on the pavement .

A single butterfly was frantically fluttering its wings

but not getting off the ground.

It was right in front of a truck's tire too.

Without thinking I got out of my car,

held my hand up so the truck driver wouldn't move forward,

and bent down to look at the butterfly.

One of its legs was stuck in what looked like spilt soda.

I reached down

and gently as I could cupped the butterfly in my hands.

I lifted its leg up

and suddenly it was free.

I opened my hands

and up it flew towards the shining sun.

My own eyes shined brighter

and my own heart felt lighter as I watched it.

Now a lot of people might wonder

why I would step out into traffic like that

to rescue a single butterfly.

All I can say is that my heart was guiding me at that moment.

And when I was done I felt more like my true self than I had all day.

The truth is the closer you are to the Earth,

the closer you come to Happiness.

The more love that you share on this Earth,

the more love you take with you to Eternity .

Fill your days with grace, goodness, and love then.

And your heart will feel as light as a butterfly.
