Bumblebees are the ones we see working hard all summer. They are the ones pollinating and providing for their queen. They are a symbol to me of power, dedication, focus, and hard work. Though I'm not big into insects, I like the symbolism of the bee. I try hard to emulate these characteristics that are so encouraging to me. I learn from them because the idea of being "as busy as a bee" means that there is no idleness in a person's life. They are good stewards of the time given to them, which can mean a number of things! For me, busy as a bee, means I'm being productive. I'm working hard, I'm crossing items off my to do list, and I'm putting in a good day's worth of work.
