Once again, well done Christine! Many of us search for an inner strength, some of us find it, others quit searching…


A bee flies into the kitchen

buzzes frantically, panics,

thrashes against the glass;

outward display of fear

just like the one she

held inside herself for years.

She would berate herself,

pathetic weakness;

now her heart bleeds

compassion for them both.

She softly guides this

frightened soul towards freedom.

It’s okay to admit you’re scared.

    1. Thank you for sharing that gem. Many of us spend a lifetime searching for that inner strength that seems to just flow naturally from your work spilling over to enrich the rest of us. Love xxx

  1. Thank you, you are too kind.

    Our son came over from Ireland yesterday for the weekend with the middle one of his three children, Fionn who is 3. And the weather is gorgeous so Im looking forward to a good wekend of catch up. 😊


  2. it’s ok to admit you’re scared… that’s strength as well… the bee is a wonderful image that carries the metaphor perfectly

    1. Thank you Claudia. Christine does a wonderful job of sharing her strength with others and I was happy to re-blog her post. I hope others will stop by and check out her blog.
