Butterflies can symbolize transformation, beauty, rebirth, hope, freedom, endurance, and most importantly, LOVE! Some people feel as though butterflies are reminders of deceased loved ones.  As a butterfly-lover my whole life, I find that they bring me happiness.  I hope to share that happiness and love with others.
