Becoming Something Beautiful

After the older woman pays for the butterfly display that Katie made, she says, "Can I tell you why butterflies are so important to me?"

I finish wrapping  and give her my full attention. "Years ago, I was anorexic, and bulimic," she says, "and when I went into recovery, the butterfly symbolized me becoming myself."

"Thank you for telling me that," I say, handing her her bag, my eyes shining with tears.
