This week my four-year-old daughter was stung by a bee. Later we had this conversation.
“Do bees die when they sting you daddy?”
“Yes. I’m afraid most of them do.”
“Do they go to heaven?”
“Yep. Just like people. When they die, the bees go to heaven.”
“Do they sting people in heaven?”
“No. No one gets stung in heaven. The bees in heaven don’t ever sting.”
