home again

I'm currently sitting in Chicago O'Hara airport waiting for my connecting flight to Salt Lake City. This week is the biannual Deaf Studies Today conference at my alma mater and I am coordinating the interpreters for it. I am so excited! This will be the third time I have participated in the conference and it just always seems to get better and better!

I will be spending a few days with my family before heading down to Utah Valley for the start of the conference on Thursday. What a lucky occurrence to have Easter coincide with the timig of Deaf Studies Today. I get to spend tonight and tomorrow with my parents and my older sisters family. The joy of being an aunt is one of the greatest blessings I could have ever imagined. Then a few days with my parents and then on to Orem!

This will be very, very long hours but it is such a fun time! And I live the subject of Deaf studies so it's always wonderful to sneak away for a workshop or two, see old classmatesand teachers - all of whom I credit with making me the advocate I am today. I am so grateful to have had a college major that awakened a fire in me.

I'm also grateful for this Easter holiday. He is risen and is the reason. I hope you have a lovely day!

If you have any free time while you're in town, it would be fun to meet up for lunch or dinner.
