Humble Bee

You are mediocre and that's okay.  In the grand scheme of things, you may be just another person lost amongst the many.  But to someone you may be of great significance.  You're like a bumble bee pollinating a rose garden.  To the gardener you may be their most prized possession.  One by one you do your part and help produce the most beautiful roses in the world.  Ones that will be cherished by those who receive them.  But not everyone appreciates a rose.  Some may only see the thorns.  It may be brushed aside in favor of the daisy growing along side of it, but to the right person you still produced a work of art.  As life moves on, so must you.  As you leave the garden you'll come across vast fields of flowers.  There may even be roses. Roses more beautiful than you could ever dream to produce yourself. This may be disheartening.  But always remember, back in that garden is still a gardener who appreciates what you've done for them more than you'll ever know.
