Life is nothing if not a mélange of the bitter and the sweet. There are the moments of pleasure which we cherish and hold close to our hearts, and then there are the flashes wrought with despair that weaken us for a season but, in the end, make us more resilient. Like the bee, find joy in life . . . find ways to extract the sweetness, like honey, out of every day. There will be stings along the way, but revel in the tender moments to soothe your heart.
