Cole Shinsky lost his mother nine years ago, but he has never forgotten anything she said.

Shinsky posted on Twitter, “She stated she’d be a yellow butterfly one day.

Shinsky, a left-handed college pitcher, has recently dealt with a lot of issues, including shoulder pain and the possibility of changing schools. He yearned for someone to reassure him that everything would be well, like his mother.

Then, right when he needed her most, a surprise guest showed up around Mother’s Day.

“I was fishing off the dock at my aunt’s house and she started walking down to me with her hands cupped together,” Shinsky told The Dodo. “She said, ‘Guess who came to visit?’”

At first, Shinsky didn’t understand what his aunt was holding or why she had tears in her eyes.

His aunt opened her hands and there, on her palm, was a small yellow butterfly.

“The butterfly seemed perfectly content being held,” Shinsky said. “My aunt gently handed her to me.”

Shinsky wasn’t ready for the butterfly to fly away, so he slowly walked inside with the delicate creature perching on his hand.

“When I finally stopped moving, she worked her way up my arm and sat on my left shoulder for a few minutes before I walked outside again,” Shinsky said.

Shinsky was acutely aware of the importance of the yellow butterfly’s persistence on his pitching arm’s left arm.

He couldn’t believe she had shown up at the exact moment he needed her. Shinsky tweeted, “This is great.” I’ve been intrigued by them for nine years, but I’ve never gone near enough to touch one.

In many cultures, seeing a butterfly has deeper meanings, and some consider a yellow butterfly to be a sign of guidance and hope — just what Shinsky needed most.

“I think she specifically came to visit because I am currently in the middle of looking for a different school and I’ve been having a rough time at college,” Shinsky said. “She was just letting me know that she is still here.”

The butterfly remained with Shinsky for a short while after he went back outside before taking off.

It was a brief moment, but Shinsky has a strategy to make it endure a lifetime: he will get two yellow butterflies tattooed gazing over his left shoulder “for my angels.”
