Thankful Thursday: Flashback

In case you haven’t found out already, the new Facebook timeline is a gem for stalking. It pretty much cuts your time in half, if not more. Since my blog post for today turned into more of a 1,000+ word essay, I had to come up with something different. I decided to flip back a year in life and see what was going on. I was on the ranch in South Arkansas, feeding cattle, and preparing for some snow that would be headed our way just when calving season was to begin. I am so thankful for my experiences with different farms, ranches, and¬†operations¬†within the cattle community. Spanning 7 states and several operations, each one offers up a new perspective on the work I’ve known my entire life. It truly has been awesome to work with so many people willing to help me learn something new every day at work. In reality though, you’ll never work a day in your life if you do what you truly love.

These photos are from a post last year describing my passion of ranch life.

And this photo is of cottonseed hulls, which I forwarded on to my friend and cotton enthusiast @JPlovesCotton.

  1. You’re absolutely right, Ryan. Loving your work is a true blessing. I have been blessed to share a lifetime working with cattle and the man I love, to raise a family while doing so, and, now that he’s gone, to have such wonderful memories. I have also been blessed to be able to write about all the incredible people in agriculture, not just in the cattle business, but all aspects, through my association with The Delmarva Farmer and the years I spent as secretary of, first, the Pennsylvania Angus Assoc., and then, 18 years as executive secretary of the Maryland Angus Assoc. I’m still writing about all these wonderful people who help feed the world and hope to be for many years to come. Bless all of you. You’re the best!
