Like everyone, I absolutely enjoy the time off that I have on holidays. You can bet that I will spend some time in the field and on the water in the next few days. Unfortunately, I believe it is easy for us to get caught up in the time off and not really think about the reason for it. It also seems to me that in our pop culture we go right from the decorations and lights of Halloween directly to the decorations and bright lights of Christmas. Thanksgiving has been an important holiday for America since the very beginning. While you have some time off from work this week, take some time to remember why this is an important holiday, why we have a lot to be thankful for. . . .
I am thankful for beautiful Nebraska.
Wide open spaces and beautiful sunsets.
All the fins, fur and feathers I cross paths with, and oftentimes share experiences with in our participation in the “circle of life”.
I am thankful for faith and family.
I am thankful that I get to pursue my outdoor passions and work in a place where I get paid for doing what I love.
I am thankful for friends and the opportunity to share these things with so many of you.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
