It’s been more than a week since my last post and I don’t know where to begin. I have just finished reading The Secret Life of Bees, Sue Monk Kidd’s wonderful story of a young girl’s search for love, acceptance and the nurturing that you would think only your mother could provide. Wrong! Lilly, the narrator and star of this beautiful story, finds nurturing in the most unexpected place – well unexpected for those who are unfamiliar with the DNA found in black women. If you haven’t read it, please do and I promise you won’t regret it.
