They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and I will have to agree. I was able to return to one of my most absolute favorite places this weekend and participate in a Grilling 101. Yes, you read that right, the famous Grilling 101’s I have talked about before. I do not think it can be much better than being surrounded with people and an organization you have so much passion for and being able to cook an amazing steak. The famous Grill Master was there, showing us the skills on how to cook the steak properly. I will have to admit, I still got it. The steak was phenomenal and the food was astounding as always. If you have never tried grilled angel food cake then you need to add it to the list of things to try!
Being there brings back some wonderful memories and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to experience my internship with the Texas Beef Council. The last two weeks have been a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, but I think the struggles that we go through only make us the people that we are today. That struggle tends to push me to do more and make more of myself.
As I was sitting at the table yesterday, talking to the incredible women that surrounded me, I realized that things were starting to fall in place. The connection between local chapters across the state was slowly but surely starting to happen. That brings so much joy to my heart. I am thrilled to see where the future of CattleWomen is going and I know I will be along for the ride. Find something you love to do and invest in it and only make it better. Life is too short to be unhappy or hold grudges. Take time out of your day to do something special for a stranger. Be caring to everyone regardless of what may have happened and try to be a positive impact on someone’s life. I have met some remarkable ladies in my life who have left a lasting impression upon me. I only hope that one day I can do the same for someone else.
As always spread some love, we could all use a little more love.
