Firefly in a jar by DreamsCatchMe Firefly in a jar by DreamsCatchMe
As a child lived in another country, I had great, fun memories with those flying luminaries. Caught as many as I could in a jar then let go all at once after the count.

A thoughtful friend gave me this deathless "firefly in a jar" as a gift to remind me even in the darkest time of your life, there is always light of hope waiting...

Unfortunately, this is not a real one. The real fireflies are magical and beautiful but you don't want to keep them in a jar for too long.
