May 19, 2013

Tonight I had a good conversation with Haley, who is taking over my position as Communication & Publication Director of the Wyoming Stock Growers. Tomorrow is her first day and she is nervous and excited about starting her career. 

In Evanston for the 2010 AgriFuture conference. (L-R: Me, Kosha & Jim)

It made me think back to when I started with WSGA. That time was filled with the promise of new adventures, learning and challenges. I loved it! And looking back over the four years of working for WSGA, I would never trade that time.

The one thing I will never miss about my job,  however, is the commute – a two-hour round trip between Wheatland and Cheyenne. 

 

When I saw Laramie Peak on my commute it meant I was almost home.

I used to have a love/hate relationship with Sundays. I loved them because it was a time of fellowship and growing in my understanding of God’s word and plan for my life. I hated them because I stressed about plans for the coming week and didn’t want to get up Monday morning to drive to Cheyenne.

But, as it’s been for the past two weeks, tomorrow I’ll wake up and stay in Wheatland. Haley will take on the role of promoting WSGA and advocating for Wyoming’s livestock producers. And I’ll be the new me. The farm wife. 

I’m blessed.


God Bless You & American Agriculture,
