Saturday, 02 February 2008 - Sweet honey

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for sweet honey.

Last night, as I was sleeping,
I dreamt--marvellous error!--

that I had a beehive

here inside my heart.

And the golden bees

were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures.

~Antonio Machado, Times Alone (Translated by Robert Bly)

Imagine that. Golden bees turning my old failures into honey, changing the bitter into sweet. A miraculous transformation.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
