She boasted, “I just got a butterfly kiss.” (I prefer to call it a kiss from God.) I'm certain it was a gift from God. Leaning towards her smiling face, I fluttered my eyelashes on her cheek. “That’s it,” she exclaimed, “That’s just like butterfly!” A brief moment of ecstasy for both mother and daughter transpired in middle of field, and I gleaned a treasured memory to tuck away for future years.
God’s timing was perfect. Somehow, dishes didn’t seem so important anymore, nor schedule and interruptions of day.
Recently we celebrated her 31st birthday. She now has three beautiful daughters to join in their own dances, or exchange butterfly kisses. I hope she hasn’t forgotten.
Marie began her writing carrer after her children were grown. Altho, she did write for a few writing competitions in high school, winning one to attend Girl's State in Oklahoma City.
She wrote Christian articles for a local newspaper for two years, and has several poems published.
She hopes to publish a gift book within the year which will contain a potpourri collection of short stories,inspirations, and poetry. Marie's goal is to reach the lost for Christ.
