"Why didn't you talk about Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving Day?"
Good question. For one thing, even Google put a roast turkey and a pumpkin pie on the home page that day. Don't get me wrong; I appreciate the fact that we set aside a day for football -- uh, I mean for giving thanks -- but I tend to give thanks every day of my life. That's why I include a gratitude statement in my blog each day. That's why Biscuit McKee, the librarian in my mystery series, writes a gratitude list at the end of each day. That's why Marmalade, the library cat, adds her gratitude list (leftover chicken, the bird feeder, gentle pats, being brushed, this soft chair).
So, for the Thanksgiving Day blog, I talked about the Post Office. If that struck you as being disrespectful, I apologize.
One of the things I've been most thankful for recently has been my getting to know bees better. If you've read my posts with any regularity, you'll know that they have me learning, growing, philosophizing, laughing, and waxing thoughtful about my place in the Universe. Bees have been around a very long time -- 140 million years or so -- much longer than dinosaurs, turtles, and/or hominids. If I can help make their life a bit easier in my little corner of Lawrenceville GA, then I have every reason to be thankful.
