a bee’s life


“Most people don’t have any idea about all the complicated life going on inside a hive. Bees have a secret life we don’t know anything about.” 

 ~Sue Monk Kidd, “The Secret Life of Bees”




watched as the neighborhood kids peddled their bikes

our driveway has always been the perfect raceway

brought back images of my boys

scrambling on their bikes, scooters, skateboards

they are grown now

no more bandaging scraped knees

no more wiping away tears

no more reminders to wear their helmets

and to not ride past the mailbox!

yesterday was Mother’s Day

and it hit me that I’ve been a mom for almost 25 years

like the speed of those bike wheels

time really does fly

my new home

and my first post in my new digs.  Please be patient as this is a work in progress.  It may take a while for me to dig out all the weeds and  find my way around!
