It’s the holiday season and I’m thankful for the beauty of nature in Nebraska.
I am thankful for the sky.
I am thankful for the breathtaking views of the landscape.
I am thankful for the diversity of habitat.
And, yes, even cropland.
I am thankful for all free-ranging, living creatures.
I am thankful for being allowed to harvest nature’s bounty.
I am thankful for being given the role to become an active participant in the cycle of nature, the cycle of life for the betterment of the resource.
I am thankful for the awestruck feeling of experiencing dawn.
Have a wonderful holiday season and ask yourself: What are you thankful for in nature? Chances are, you won’t have to look too far!
