Standing at the pinnacle am I
He can feel it, too
Thank You For Letting Me Show!This poem was published in the Oklahoma Cowman magazine in the June issue for Fathers Day, and was then sent in to us from Leslie Hufnagel. The poem was written in thanks to Jerry Edwards, from Luther, Oklahoma, for all of his help, support, and guidence.
Its fathers day and I’m writing this letter
To let you know that you’ve made my life better
I could never repay you all that I owe
For all of your hard work and letting me show
Showing cattle is something that I truly love
It’s more than a hobby - it’s in my blood
It builds my self confidence and makes me feel proud
Even though I’m a little nervous in front of the crowd
It’s taught me to be gracious whether I win or lose
And that is a life skill that I can always use
It was the trophies and ribbons that drew me in
But I stay for the memories and lifelong friends
Showing cattle is something that we do together
It builds a strong family bond that will last forever
So I thank God each night when I pray
For you, and grandma, and this game that we play
But this game that we play comes with a price
And money and time is what you sacrifice
You take care of the cows and calves as they grow
Then you help me pick out which one to show
You buy the chips and even pay for the feed
And always make sure we have what we need
You help me and teach me all that you know
Then help load the trailer when we go to the show
So I just try to work hard and have a good attitude
Because I don't know how else to express my gratitude
Without you to raise ‘em and haul ‘em and such
I’m afraid my show career wouldn’t amount to much
So THANK YOU Grandpa for all that you do
We Love You Grandpa,
