|Underground Wasp Nest|
So back to the present...or at least a few days ago to be more precise.... my oldest son dug up this underground nest after the bees had been poisoned with gas. WOW! We had no idea how large this wasp nest was. We had hung a hammock not 2 feet away from the nest and the three small children had enjoyed many a lively swing; laughing and tipping upside down there. To think of the danger that lay so close by... my little boy who was mad about getting stung, soon realized how much to be thankful for.
I was thinking how we adults react in much the same way...get mad or upset and then get thankful. I'm not saying we should like getting stung by a bee. I'm just saying when things don't go our way or we experience suffering, pain, or trials we often don't realize just how bad it could've been...like my sister-in-law always says, "It could be worse."
