It is a Miracle

Seriously. It kind of boggles the mind.

Emma received a Butterfly Pavilion for Christmas. Before that day was done, she made me get online and order her caterpillars for her 'experiment'.

Who would have thought that you could order caterpillars online, really?

Well, they came, and unfortunatly three fourths of them didn't make it. There were only two left, and we were hoping they would survive.

They did, and they got bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and then one day, they just start hanging from the top of the sealed cup they came in.

Eventually they turned into Chrysalis' and sat there for some time - and then a week or so later, the first one popped out as a beautiful butterfly.

Amazing, really. I mean, to be able to turn from a caterpillar, change your whole body structure, and pop out able to fly a few days later is really an accomplishment. Even after having read up on the process still makes you wonder how it really works.

Just another case of miraculous events we find in this journey we call life. I wonder what's next?
