The Sweet Things in Life

Bee_sweet

Have you gifted yourself some time to smell the sweet things in life or are you always running from one thing to the next and not taking the time to smell the roses?

This weekend after all the rain we received, the sunshine came out, and my backyard came to life.  I gifted myself the time to just “be” and observe all that was occurring around me.  This tiny busy bee held me spell bound with how its gift of pollination results in the many foods that abound on my table. Besides the obvious honey, they also help to produce things like apples, oranges, lemons, limes, broccoli, onions, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, cucumbers, cantaloupes,carrots,avocados, and almonds. In fact, “Every third bite of food you take, is thanks to a bee or other pollinator.” E.O. Wilson, Forgotten Pollinators, 1996

When I take the time just to be, I find that it helps to bring much more calm and appreciation into my life.  What are some little things that you can do to help bring some sweetness to your life?  What little things are you not noticing that are truly big things?

By slowing down and just listening, watching and sensing all that nature shows, you will be helping to bring great sweetness into your life.  Enjoy every loving spoonful!

Sending sunshine your way,

Susanne
