I missed my bloggoversary on 28 Oct. I have now been blogging for three years.
Thanks for the reminder Julie!
I could tell you a little bit about the history of Halloween. I could tell you a skeery story. I could tell you a Trick or Treat story from when I was a kid.
But what I think I'll tell you is a quick little story about Bees.
Yesterday at my office, we had a Halloween afternoon. Now I've been insanely busy at work with a massive inventory project, and I didn't really have time for fun and frolics and frivolity.
I know! Me! No time for silliness? Oh the humanity!
Anyway, employees were invited to bring their families to the office for the party and for some Trick or Treating for the kids at everyone's desk. Naturally I had a few decorations out and a big cauldron of candy.
I'm busy, but I had to make time for a little bit of fun.
So y'all know that I'm a Worker Bee for Peace, right?
Well, as the kids were parading by in their cute little costumes, what do you suppose I saw?
Ready for it?
BEES! There were four kids wearing little BEE costumes!
Well! Who am I to argue with serendipity? I stopped working and took a break for an hour to enjoy a bit of fun and frolics and frivolity.
I found one little guy in a BEE costume...I work with his dad. He's about 4 years old and he knows me pretty well. He calls me Unc Twavs. I taught him to throw his arms up in the air and say "BEES FOR PEACE"! And then I taught him a little jig.
You should have heard him giggle. It was priceless.
I did NOT giggle!
But I did have some fun after all during my insanely busy day.
Are you ready for Blog Blast for Peace? It's coming up fast...this Thursday in fact.
"If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day." Alex Noble
