The last session of conference has ended. This was the best year I've ever listened to. And it wasn't because the speakers were dramatically different, but I was. This year I drank up what the leaders of the church had to say. Beyond being older, I think the difference was that this year I came with a question I wanted to have answered. It made all the difference. I've heard others say so before, but I'd never thought to ask a question of my own before. Now I know that from now on I am sitting down for General Conference with a question in my mind.
It's sad to think that the next conference in October I won't be with my family, but friends at college. Things are changing rapidly, its frightening and exhilarating.
This weekend the weather has been true spring weather, with the sun shining and a slight breeze blowing almost constantly. The birds have been singing and I've had my window open for the first time in a few very long months. It's wonderful. I'm ready to pull out my capris, even though its probably only like 60 degrees.
