It seems like this day is one that I have been waiting for all my life. It feels like it's my birthday or like christmas day came early!! Today, was Bid Day at TCU! I can remember attending games at the University of Arkansas and seeing the cool fraternity houses and thinking, "I can't wait to be part of something that cool!" As I grew up I didn't really know if I would find a group that I fit in with. So way before I choose TCU I prayed that I would find some place like that with great guys who I felt were fairly similar to myself. When I got to TCU I knew I wanted to be a Beta. I like everything that they stand for. I like the guys. I like there attitude. I like how I felt at home. I like how I felt God wanted me there. The rush process for guys is much different and at times I found myself a little worried that things wouldn't work out the way I wanted, but then I remembered that God's plan for me would be the best, no matter where I ended up. That was a hard thing to concentrate on, but I just prayed and knew that he would work it out. From past experience I knew that if it wasn't as I planned he would make it better than ever in the end. I can honestly say this first couple of weeks has been a major faith test. I have had more faith than I have had in a long time and I am so thankful for that.
I actually received a bid from Beta yesterday, but I wanted to wait and share today after it was truly official! I literally could have cried when I found out yesterday, but can you imagine how mad my mother would have been when I called her to tell her the good news? The thing I want most out of Fraternity is not the party or the girls, but it is a group of mentors to look up to throughout college. I want to learn from other great guys and in turn hope that I will be a wonderful mentor to someone someday. I know that I have found that at Beta. My pledge class in the largest on campus, but I know it will be the best. It is full of such unique and cool guys. I can't wait to spend the next 4 years with them. I cannot even put my excitement or thanks into words. I am simply thankful. No better way to describe it. I am thankful that they feel like I fit in at Beta. I am thankful that they make me feel at home. I am thankful for my pledge class. I am thankful for the way they live life daily. I am thankful that God had this in his plan. I am thankful for Beta Theta Pi at TCU and the men that make it such a great group. I can't believe the process is finally over. Being thankful today is necessary. Thank you to everyone who has thought of me and congratulated me on this accomplishment. TCU was already great, but I know God has placed me in Beta to make it even better! I guess I can add Frat to the list of Souther qualities huh? Man I am going to be giving more thanks than on thanksgiving tonight. It is good to be a Beta!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
