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!
