And, I’m not just talking about the baby. 🙂 Elizabeth brought the mail in today and handed me a manila envelope. It was adressed to me from the Ensign. It felt like a magazine. “Could this be?” I wondered. I opened the envelope and there in my hands sat the January issue, not yet released to the general public. I flipped to the index, expecting to find my article, “Not Just A Blanket” located in the back, Latter-day Voices, section. I was surprised to find it listed as a feature article on page 25! 🙂 I think I’ve read it at least 5 times now and just sit in awe holding the magazine thinking – there is my name in print. Of course, I didn’t write the article with the anticipation of being ‘published’ and I was genuinely surprised when the informed me they would be publishing it. I wrote it because I felt inspired to do so, but there is still something amazing about seeing something your wrote officially published. Must be the writer in me. 🙂
So there you have it, keep your eye out for the January publication (if you get the Ensign) and look on page 25 for my short little blurb – oh, and if you don’t keep your Ensigns eternally, I would love any extra copies you can send – once you are done reading it and everything of course! 🙂 Also, if you don’t receive the Ensign and want to read the article I will post a link to it once it is up on the website – probably later this month, or beginning of Jan.
