Beulah Ferris’s Day Off
I've watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! - not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!
William Wordsworth, "To a Butterfly"
Beulah Ferris wanted nothing more than a day off.
She was tired of flitting about pollinating so many colorful flowers.
Being an exquisitely beautiful butterfly is hard work
She needed a vacation before she went berserk.
Beulah needed a relaxing rest
Just once, to be treated like a guest
One single day to bask in the sun
was her idea of ultimate fun.
If she had no work to do
She’d just land and enjoy the view.
Stop and sip some nectar.
Not have to travel too far.
No worries about some kid catching her in a jar!
When you need something done
Just call on the Teapotters
We’re a group that likes to have fun
We’re as busy as hungry otters.
Teapotters to the Rescue!
Isn’t that what we do?
You can always count on us
Feed us cookies and we won’t make a fuss.
Our mission is to bring flowers that a tired, overworked butterfly can rest on. If you bring a friend for Beulah that she can land next to and talk to butterfly style that would be good, too.
CHALLENGE TRANSLATION: Bring flowers and butterflies. Extra cookies if you include encouraging Scripture.

We as people are raindrops of colorful ink , falling down Crisp and Clear, each a different shade more vibrant then the last, but once we realize at the bottom of an endless abyss we all fall into the same inkpot forming one color, only then can we come together as one My son.
I didn't have time to make a new card for Brenda because I was home in Orlando visiting with family this past weekend. But I have lots of butterfly cards in my stash so I'm sure I have something appropriate to send!
I'm such a bad teapotter. I was supposed to have my card ready for Fran before the cheater email went out. I got sidetracked with the first week of homeschool with my daughter. Bad Teapotter..Bad Teapotter...
But I did get Brenda's card made. I want to thank all you ladies who are sending me cards to send along to Brenda. She is having a very hard time. She's in a rehab center learning to walk again and use her left hand again. She is speaking some, but it's going to be a long road for her. She is going to love all the cards and kind words. Thanks so much.

I have been through the gallery and I can't believe all the beautiful cards that you ladies have made for Brenda. She is going to be overwhelmed. I received the first card today. My mailbox should be starting to overflow with love for Brenda soon. I can't wait for her to receive the package with all these cards in them. Thanks so much for putting so much care and love into the cards you made. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
