This past weekend something spectacular happened. I received an award that I held in high regard. Texas CattleWomen of the Year. To make the event even more special, one of my best friends was able to present this award to me. Not only has she taken me under her wing, but she has become more like family to me. I am so thankful for her and will forever be grateful for the time she has given me.
I fumbled through a speech at the presentation of the award but I can express my feelings through my writings better. Receiving this award was one of the greatest experiences that I have had with CattleWomen. It is nice to get recognized and know that the work that you are putting in gets noticed. I know that sometimes I can be a little impatient when it comes to things. I, however, have so much passion, love, and drive for CattleWomen, that I want it to be the best it can be. I hope that everyone knows that all the work I do is for the good of the organization.
CatttleWomen is not just an organization to me, it is another family. I honestly do not know where I would be without CattleWomen. I joined this organization at a time when I was discovering myself. This organization let me belong regardless of my background, my views, and my past. From day 1, I have felt nothing but love from the women of this organization. It is an amazing feeling to know that you have family across the state of Texas to call upon.
I am beyond excited about the future of the organization. I feel great things are in the work for us. Thank you again for all the people that have a passion for the organization and want it to succeed. Thank you to my family who helps me out so that I can do the things that I love. Find your drive and your passion. Find what brings you joy, explore it, and do everything in your power to not lose it. You only have one life, make the most of it. CattleWomen, you will always have my heart.
As always, share some love, we could all use a little more love.
