To All the Morning People ~ Thank You
I am not a morning person. I have never been a morning person. And, I never will be a morning person. I love morning people. Without them I wouldn't have all the wonderful conveniences of my lifestyle. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the morning people who directly or indirectly contribute to my success as a human being.
First, I would like to thank the makers of coffee. I mean the people out there picking the beans, the ones at the factory crushing and/or bagging the beans whole. The people involved in shipping the coffee to my local store. The producers of coffee makers. The water providers. Without the first cup of the day, I'm dead in the water, and those around me at risk of getting their head bit off for creating the slightest of noise. My grown children also thank you for contributing to their survival.
Second, I would like to thank all the clothing manufacturers that produce comfortable clothing, the likes in which I sit writing this thank you as we speak. There's a lot to be said for sweatpants and t-shirts. Sure, professional attire has its place in my life, but not when I first get up, or if I'm writing.
Third, I would like to thank the light bringers that illuminate the late night writing sessions, where more than honey is produced. Those who make light bulbs and create the electricity that allows the darkness to be held back for a few more hours.
And finally, I would like to thank the people who work hard to bring us all the modern conveniences of the internet. Without those dedicated morning people, turning out code and building the newest and greatest platforms, my career as an author would be ended. I use the internet for a lot of research, purchasing software necessary to the craft of writing, and to speak to the world.
I am not a morning person, but I can be grateful to be blessed by those who are.
