Two years later, when my husband and I were on vacation we went to a park with zip lines (because he's always wanted to do that). I'm afraid of heights, (so I was stressed!) but didn't mind trying it (that's what you do when you care with someone). There were 2 Zip Line routes, each with 7 zip lines. I think they were both about 150 feet off the ground.
As we were going up the first Zip Line tower, I was dealing with anxiety from my fear of heights. As we got to the top of the (open faced stairs) and to the tower platform, suddenly a yellow and black butterfly flew around my feet and lingered for a short time. I KNEW it was Sprite and I heard "don't worry daddy, I'm here to protect you." That gave me the courage to do all of the zip lining.
What's odd is that it was the ONLY yellow and black butterfly we saw the entire day. All of the other butterflies were blue with black outlines on the wings, and one orange butterfly. There is no such thing as a coincidence. This was a message from Sprite when I needed to hear it.
