I thought I would send out a quick note wishing all of you a safe and happy Thanksgiving, from my family to yours. Today we are counting our many blessings in life and giving thanks with friends and family across the country. Like so many of you, today will be spent with family telling stories and jokes, eating stuffing, turkey and pumpkin pie (although when I'm a big kid, I'm going to serve beef at my Thanksgiving meal).
Today, I’m thankful for my family, especially my supportive parents and fun-loving little sisters. I’m thankful for my cattle and my family’s seedstock business. I’m thankful for my good health. I’m thankful for the opportunities in agriculture that I have to look forward to as my career progresses. I’m thankful for the roof over my head, the food I eat and the bed where I rest. I’m thankful for God’s many gifts, especially for all of the people that I share my life with. I'm also thankful for my passions in agriculture and the beef cattle industry, and I’m thankful to be surrounded by people like you that feel the same way I do, and I’m blessed to have you in my life. Farmers and ranchers care, and for that, I'm thankful!
Happy Thanksgiving from BEEF Daily! Here is a poem to celebrate this day:
More Than A Day
As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we're poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.
We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We're wealthy, when push comes to shove.
So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you've got;
Realize it's a lot,
And you'll make all your cares go away.
