A Time to be Thankful

Before I slip in to a tryptophan induced coma tomorrow because I ate too much turkey, I wanted to take a moment and just express my thanks for...

The brave men and women who protect our freedoms and fight our battles in some very dangerous places in the world. You are the best of the best, and you have our undying gratitude.

The men and women who protect us at home. Thanks to the often under appreciated police and firefighters who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe.

The gracious acts of common courtesy, often times by complete strangers. These make life run a little bit more smoothly.

Good friends that know you and accept you for what you are, warts and all.

My family and the joys that we can share with one another. The smile of my son and daughter.

Good health- one of life's greatest blessings, and those that work to get us back to good health when we are sick.

The abundant supply of our daily needs. And the generosity of those that supply to others less fortunate.

The "new Media" like Twitter, that has introduced me to many new friends and hockey fans across the world.

The amazing beauty of fall in Middle Tennessee.

The great bloggers that cover the Predators. We are second to no one in this area.

The fact that David Legwand and Marty Erat have started to play productive hockey.

That our power play has finally started scoring.

That a simple game can unite an arena full of people from all backgrounds to beat as one heart and exhort their team to victory.

There are oh so many more things each of us can add to our own personal list. As you spend time with family, friends, and loved one this holiday season, my wish for you is that each of you have much for which to be thankful.
