Christmas has come and passed, we celebrated the brith of our Lord and Savior as well as new calves finally hitting the ground running. After some serious technical difficulties I fell out of touch with my blog, but now rising with so much more excitement, information, and memories to share with some of my closest peers, friends, and competition. Within the last month I attended the Advanced Leadership Development Conference listening to some of the most influential leadership speakers, interacting with FFA members from around the state, and spending quality time with my new found friends. The Skiatook FFA Chapter hosted our annual Christmas Party as well as Officer Bonding both filled with pajamas, classic Christmas movies, a big dinner, and the most important of all being surrounded with our FFA family. Now show season is upon us and some of our family members are still catching up on sleep after the Western National Stock-show in Denver, Colorado concluded this week. With Parker busy caught up in the college life and working with all kinds of show cattle in between dad has been pulling almost all the weight on the farm putting out the hay when it’s too cold for mom and I to get out or feeding late at night when we have school activities. Sickness struck our house causing a lack of will, and a loss of school. That being said I’ve had plenty of time to work on my speeches for the upcoming season. After grieving the loss of one of our herd starting cows yesterday I’m so excited to announce the birth of two new calves within the last few weeks. Two Hereford heifers who will grow up to be my last go round, my senior project, my last two FFA show calves! This weeks verse I have focused on happened to help shed light onto my feelings about all the upcoming events. “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy” Psalm 126:3. These words speak life into me as I remember not to worry about the stress that is on it’s way concerning speech season, the competitions for CDE’s and show season. This also reminds me that I have many things to feel blessed about, thank you to my FFA family.
