"Even though the bee is small, there she is on the flower, doing something of value. And the value she creates there contributes to a larger ecosystem of value, in that mountain meadow, in that range of mountains, in the world and even the universe. And can't you just feel how happy she is?...Bees have so much to offer us if we only listen." - Jay Ebben, Painted Hives
"Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks--we will also find our path of authentic service in the world."
― Parker Palmer, Let Your Life Speak
Blessings to you on your journey growing into your "own authentic self-hood." May you increasingly become aware of your true value and the value that you create in the world. Today we honor you and your "work" in the world.
