To Bee or Not Too Bee
By Caryl Sherman
What brings me comfort are the moments I sit outside, in my private little apartment garden, reading a book whose words intrigue and delight me.
The big black shiny honey bees are flitting about my blooming flowers, sipping their nectar and laughing with joy.
Yes, I can hear them. Maybe you can’t, but I have cultivated a special and long lasting relationship with them.
They are my neighbors, and my friends. They fly to see me everyday. They are loyal and perpetually consistent with their love.
I rise with anticipatory excitement as I hustle outside! Which one will I see today as I gleefully read to them aloud?
Does it bring us comfort? Are we the same, even though we appear so different?
We are living things. We matter! We grow intrinsically, day by day, as we flourish among the colorful and newly sprouting Spring flowers.
I celebrate our mutual understanding. We are God’s special and intimate compatriots. We can sort out our differences at a later time!
Don’t you think?
