The last couple of weeks have flown by. I cannot believe that summer is almost over and school will begin again. I have really been doing my best to have Mattie time as well as doing as much for Texas CattleWomen as I can. We have been having informational session across the state of Texas the last couple of weeks. I was beginning to get a little discouraged as I felt I had not made the impact that I was hoping for. However, this past weekend, God reassured me that with determination, persistence, and hard work, things will begin to work out. In the near future, there will be a new local chapter emerging in Texas CattleWomen. Words cannot begin to describe how incredibly excited I am about this. God knew exactly what I was needing to make me feel that my work was making an impact. Concho Valley CattleWomen will be the new chapter. I was able to visit with these ladies this past weekend in San Angelo. They are some of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. One thing I know for sure about CattleWomen, no matter what the outcome is, you will always make new friends and not just some new friends, some lifetime friends. I have gotten some renewed energy from that event and look forward to the upcoming events that we are having in Georgetown, Stephenville, and Cleburne. If you are a CattleWomen, meaning you love beef, and are interested in either joining a local or creating one, please feel free to reach out to me!
Mattie and I were able to make a trip to the Houston Zoo the past couple of weeks as well. While it was hootttt! It was a blast. If you have never seen of an okapi before then you should check them out. It is one of her favorite animals and one of the first ones we saw. We were also able to see a baby elephant that was about three weeks old, it only weighed over 300 pounds that’s all. Jeffrey was also able to join us while we went to the aquarium in Houston. It was pretty interesting if you have never been, however, I recommend not going if it is raining, you will miss out on the rides outside.
Overall, life has been crazy, but a beautiful crazy. I could not ask for anything better. I am healthy, Mattie is healthy, we are both happy and things seems to be looking up in the right direction. We also have Jeffrey who we spend time and get to be silly with. Laughter cures everything and is one of my favorite things to do. In addition to all the great things already going on, I was also able to start a new job recently that I am super excited about! It is with Ranch TV that is a program with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Services. While it is just a student worker position while I am in school, but it is a step into the industry. I will be able to do projects and programs that I love doing, so it is a win-win for me.
As always share some love, we could all use a little more love.
