Call me.crazy, but I have always loved June Bugs.♡ They get their name because they emerge in great quantities during the month of June. I grew up with a pool in our backyard. Every summer you could always find dozens of them swimming on the.pool at night. These beetles are attracted to light I used to love to save them from drowning in the pool, or so I thought, by allowing them to grasp onto my finger. They would hold on tight with their little legs then fly away once I carried them to safety. I loved the feeling of those tiny, delicate little legs holding tight.
I recently received news that the mother of one of my best friends, my college roommate, was clinging to life herself. Just like those little June bugs of years past. And her name is June. ♡ Yesterday morning June went to surgery. She had a double bypass and Atrial appendage clip done.
She is my little June Bug. ♡ She’s always been so full of life. Little but mighty. Full of spunk. You know what they say, Dynamite comes in small packages. 🙂 My own mother has left this earth. I love June like my own! I love when my friend comes to Tulsa and I get to see June. ♡ Our last time spent together was Taco Tuesdays. June shares my fondness for Taco Bueno’s $2.99 special on their taco platters on Tuesdays. A girl after my own heart. ♡
Here’s to June! ♡ May each of you take a moment as you read this to send up a prayer for June.For her recovery. She’s clinging to life right now. Our little June Bug. If you are blessed to still have your parents here on earth, stop what you’re doing and tell them you love them. If not. Take a moment to honor them. In silence. For all they were and did for you. Because it’s the right thing to do.
I love you June! ♡
