Where Past and Present Meet
Day 2, and I was just as happy as the previous day—headaches and all! What was so neat is to see just how many people I recognized or knew at the conference! When I attended my last conference at my last job (in October), I knew my two co-workers, a girl from a previous YSA branch, and someone I had met at my roommate’s co-worker’s daughter’s quincenera. But at this one, there are all the people I know from my own system (which makes me feel good that I’m getting to know them). And then there was a former co-worker who had moved away, but like me is back in Utah. Then there was a former BYU acquaintance. And then there were my PCL co-workers. I was able to sit with them at lunch both days. And it was so wonderful to be so welcomed by them.
I love belonging not just at my work—but in my field and among peers throughout the entire state!
