Daily Gratitude Year 5-Day 62: Today, I am grateful for honey. 

Honey is magnificent. It sweetens naturally and actually helps regulate blood sugar levels. It has medicinal qualities that have been recognized and used for, at least, 4,000 years.  

The Bible mentions honey at least 62 times. 

My son, eat honey, for it is good,
    and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste. Know that wisdom is such to your soul;  if you find it, there will be a future, and your hope will not be cut off. 
-Proverbs 24:13-14

 It was medicine in our farmhouse... with honey, lemon and whiskey. It calmed our bronchial coughs and we slept. We healed and grew stronger. 

They say the best honey is from local vendors. The health benefits increase when it comes from a local source. 

Kind words are like honey... sweet to the soul with a power not fueled by force, but by love. 

It is Friday... so this is short and not too much to think about. I may try to intentionally choose honey (and kind words) this weekend. 

Today, I am grateful for honey... and kind words.
