Giving life a second chance.

Today while watching my daughter at the pool, she spotted a bee. Immediatly, she started freaking out, asking me to get the bee out. I found a leaf and pulled the little guy to safety. He was disoriented for a bit but then started to walk around after feeling the suns warmth.

After about 2 minutes, still not being able to fly, he started walking toward me. I looked down at him and saw him drying his body and wings off with his tiny legs and tongue. It was quite an amazing sight. I, being the photo nut that I am, started taking pictures. I then noticed he was watching me take his picture and it looked as if he was bowing to say thank you.

I walked away to take pictures of others things for about 15 minutes, when I came back to my seat, I saw the bee sitting by my shoes. He then wwalked away and tried to fly, he did a flip and fell to the ground. He walked awway a little farther…flipped his wings a bit and then tried again. This time, he flew straight up, then back and forth, like a flying saucer would and took off! That made me feel really good.

I gave this little life a second chance.

    Renee,
    I am soooo impressed with your writing and photos.

    I would suggest that you turn this real life event into a short story for READER’S DIGEST! Simply take this story and apply it to our every days struggle with life…all of us!

    Sometimes we get bogged down with external forces that keep us from walking through our daily life…i.e. the wet wings of a bee. Millions of beautiful people that surround us everyday are going to wake up someday with “Wet Wings”, and they are going to feel lost, hopeless, and even at their wits end! All they need…is for another person to just listen…for just a minute (take a moment and help them dry off their wet wings) or their tears…or their fears. Just take a moment to look around and LISTEN (a lost art) …I guarantee there will be someone that appears to them self to be in dire straights….and ALL IT WILL TAKE….is for you to pull them into a quiet place to …DRY THEIR WINGS!

    Just another Ken

    I do accept as true with all of the concepts you have offered in your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners. May you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post. fkgcggdbfkge

      Thank you Johna670. Ironically, I felt this post was little short myself. I will definately extend for now on. Thank you for the comment and the feedback. It is much appreciated.
