Being Thankful for Perspective

A couple of weeks ago, I had a fun idea for a post.

Many of my Facebook friends have been doing the November “30 Days of Thankful” thing where they post a daily status of things they are thankful for.  That is very nice and sweet, so clearly I saw a good opportunity to do a snarky “30 Days of No Thanks” post where I come up with 30 things that I am not thankful for (example:  runny, stinky blowout poops from my three month old daughter)*.

*And let’s be honest here – I fully reserve the right to do that post next year.

But I have witnessed two things in the last ten days that have changed my mind and made me think that being a flippant smart ass about the numerous blessings in my life is not the way to go this year.

Reasons for Thanks – football edition

The Thanksgiving season is a time for reflection and for showing appreciation and gratitude for the people and things in your life

There are several things that I am very thankful for.  First and foremost on the list are my beautiful wife, amazing daughter, and the second daughter we will adopt in December or early January.  I am also thankful for my health, my freedom, my job, and for the opportunity to write about my beloved Huskers for the best Husker site on the interwebs.  I am thankful for countless other people and things in my life, but since this is a Husker-centric site, let me share some of the many Husker-related things I’m thankful for.
