Just a quick post today, but about something that I am a firm believer in. Recently, through my travels I watched as several juniors dreams may have been crushed, or they were put in a situation they weren’t prepared to face. From a father having a heart issues and being in the hospital during Jr Nationals, to not making the junior board, to not being named a a national breed queen, to just simply not placing as well with a heifer. I watched the tears and the broken dreams scatter across the paths of my journies, however instead of feeling sorry for those individuals I choose a different path. To those I knew, I said a comforting word and reminded them that : Everything Happens for a Reason”. I am and always have been a firm believer in this saying. We may not understand why at that moment, tomorrow or the next day, but someday we will be thankful that things turned out like they did. There have been many times I have worked my butt off for things I wanted, and didn’t get anything for my work. Eventually, it became clearer why those things didn’t work out and some things I still don’t understand; however I realize that God has a plan for me and he has provided me with so many things that I should be thankful for such as: a loving family, a healthy family, great friends, a home, food, and a life of showing cattle.  I am writing all of this to remind everyone to be thankful for what we have, pray everytime you get a change, and the next time things don’t work out just the way you had hoped, remember that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON and look ahed to the positives that are waiting for you. I challenge each and everyone of you to wake up everyday and write down 3 things you are thankful for, without repeating, so that you start each day off in a positive light and are reminded to be thankful for all that you have.
