Did you know today is Squirrel Appreciation Day?! Did you even know there was such a day? I only found out myself a few minutes ago (thanks Andy) and here I could have been celebrating squirrels all day.
Personally, I like squirrels. I think they’re cute. Then again, I don’t have any bird feeders in my yard. People who have bird feeders seem to have a disdain for squirrels. My dad (who is totally awesome and loves all the other animals) is one of those people who does not like squirrels. I enjoy teasing him about this from time to time. I’ve sent him random emails with pictures of squirrels, mailed him packages with squirrels on the address label, etc. Every Christmas I see a squirrel calendar for the upcoming year and think to myself, “I should buy one for dad” and snicker to myself.
Whenever my dad comes to town to visit me, he comments on the large squirrel population in my neighborhood (it usually involves words like “overrun”, “infested” and “rodents”). So recently I pointed out to him that squirrels are one of God’s creatures and God doesn’t make mistakes. He said it was on his list of questions to ask when he meets his Maker.
Hope you are having a fabulous Squirrel Appreciation Day!
