Abby’s Dragonfly

A sign of purity, speed, and happiness.

As we visit Abby’s gravesite, sit on the back deck or drive through the elementary school carpool line, there seem to be colorful dragonflies nearby. Dragonflies often symbolize maturity, change, and the understanding of a deeper meaning of life. Their iridescent wings project different colors and indicate a well-defined vision into the truths of life. Abby’s life was full of color – the more the better – but specifically hot pink with zebra details.

Abby was born in Albuquerque New Mexico so it is only fitting that the Dragonfly be our image of focus. In the Native American community, it is a sign of purity, speed and happiness. Abby possessed all of these qualities. She was only 9 years old when she became our Angel in Heaven. Abby was a very happy child especially when helping others or spending time with family and friends.

“When a dragonfly appears in your life, may it keep you mindful to embrace joy into your life, display your true colors, and try to achieve your full potential.”
