Bumble Bees

I have always loved bees. I always wear a bee charm around my neck from my sister and a bee pin on my coat that belonged to my gran. My house is also filled with bee pictures, trinkets and ornaments.

My interest in them comes from my love of nature and the important role they play in pollination and our food supplies and life. But it also comes from this quote:

“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway”. Mary Kay Ash

When I first got unwell and was having to go back and forth to hospital, one of my dear friend’s children sent me a cuddly toy bee and card that read:

To Fifi, I wanted you to have someone like my bunny to watch over you when you have your operation. I saw this buzzybee and Bunny says he would be the best man for the job. Love Ery xxx

I thought this was the most beautiful gesture ever! So when I was diagnosed with cancer I couldn’t think of a better way to tell my story than with ‘Mr BuzzyBee’. He is a reminder that I am loved and, more importantly, he is a reminder to always believe that the impossible is possible.
