Mission Reunion...

Went to mine last night and wound up staying a bit longer than I anticipated. I love my mission president and his family. I saw him about a year and a half ago but before then, the last time I had seen him was my last night in the mission field. He is just as tall, just as comforting, his presence just as reassuring and his hair is a LOT more silver. :)

So many memories came flooding back. I forgot how when you talk to him for a long time your neck starts to hurt. I loved sitting with fellow missionaries (and their families) and watching him pull out his scriptures and start to lay out doctine with his deep cadences. I just let all the feelings and spirit just wash over me.

I loved talking to Sis. Hamula. I'd forgotten she always wanted to see what I was doodling next. We spent some quality time just going over idle doodles that I had in my clipboard. I showed her my "Mormon Cartoons," and she laughed and laughed at them.

I only saw one of my own comps and it was so good to see her. Her laugh is a wonderful thing. I'd forgotten how much I loved to hear it. I need to go visit her in Provo. It was neat seeing her and her kids.

I received some personal counsel from Pres. Hamula. It was exactly the right thing I needed to hear and left me frankly, stunned.

We also got a sneak preview of this upcoming General Conference. Batten down your hatches folks. I took my younger brother with me to my reunion and just for that little bit of what is coming he says he is glad he came. I joked that I brought him along to help field off awkward questions.
"So...are you...?"
"Yes. Yes I am still drawing." hee hee.

I am in a good place and I am grateful for that. I am grateful for a great many things.

  • "ARRROOOO?" or "Is anybody there?"

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

  • Checking in

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

  • "10 Things" or "Q&A"

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
