I do! However, I didn’t recognize the significance of the super bright, epic, dragonfly until I was heart-stricken.
On August 14the a ten-inch wingspan dragonfly hovered around my head.
It circled, creating a figure-eight-pattern.
This water insect got my attention.
The brilliant green of its body became mesmerizing to the point I went inside the house and retrieved my cell phone to get an image.
Do you see a large fluorescent dragonfly in this picture? Yeah, I don’t either; yet, it was centered in front of the lens—right in the middle of the sight square. The live jewel suspended inches from my phone.
A few days later my pleasant peaceful life became rife with traumatic life altering events. A loved one suffered a massive medical dysfunction, which would take a year to recover. I became POA.
Don’t know what POA represents? Nor did I, it’s Power of Attorney. My family member’s attorney was an “Old Boys Club” faithful member. He did not provide information, no guidebook to help me navigate through the lies, deceptions and threats to my life. I certainly could have used a manual of some sort. His only advice was to be smart, secure all the valuables and document everything. He later tried to get different males to rule as POA–all were rejected by my family member.
Transformation and change is the symbolism I looked for in the dragonfly, instead I should have been (should be) looking out for illusions and deceits; which began my personal journey of change.
The dragonfly’s lightness allows it to adapt and be flexible, and I’m experiencing the need to adjust and become less ridged with my honest belief in the goodness of mankind. I must find a way to recognize deceit before more roadblocks and hardships occur.
I need to learn how to tackle issues and problems from different angles.
On September 17th, a second dragonfly, smaller in size and not as brilliant, flew onto my car’s windshield as I waited in the pharmacy line. Another sign?
Yeah, I get it now. I’ll try to keep faith and an upbeat mindset; even while I trudge deeper into the quagmire of cunning hypocrisy my challenged relatives create.

Currently, I share the POA responsibility, but I continue to be immersed in the drama and fear the threat from another sibling promising to take me out and end me, I ponder the power involved with the decision making regarding a sick family member and the crucial impact it is making on my personal life choices.
I don’t want my children to worry. I’ve been honest, truthful, and try to be generous and kind, so I’m not afraid of what comes next.
Besides, the dragonfly inspires to keep a positive outlook-no matter what-a truly difficult task at times and my new motto.
Happy Holidays, everyone.
