"If I was a butterfly, I’d thank you Lord for giving me wings..." you might have heard or even participated in singing this very chirpy hymn when you were little. It was my favourite! And I would wish with my eyes closed every single morning that I’d suddenly transform into a butterfly and flutter my wings away to places far and wide.

Turned out that I transformed into an engineer instead and this long lost memory just came back to me as I sat down to write this short piece. I feel this sudden burst of emotion, so mixed, I can’t express it. I am finally that butterfly – I am far away from home and I thank the Lord for giving me wings!
