The Highlight of My Week

As a correspondent for the Standard-Examiner, I rarely hear back from people I have written about who think that I am doing a great job; I always hear back when I make a mistake etc. That is just part of the job. I must say, some of the feedback that I have gotten on one of my recent stories has been very nice.
This is the link to the original story http://apa.olivesoftware.com/Repository/ml.asp?Ref=U1NFLzIwMDgvMDMvMDgjQXIwMTkwNA==&Mode=HTML&Locale=english-skin-custom
The founder of Small Smiles called me and said that because of our story, They are now moving their program into Ogden and Weber Counties....thousands of kids will be affected (YAY!) In addition, word somehow got to Idaho...the entire state of Idaho will now join on. (double yay!)

If that wasn't wonderful enough, The paper published a letter to the editor about my story (how rad is that?) Here is the link to that http://activepaper.olivesoftware.com/Repository/ml.asp?Ref=U1NFLzIwMDgvMDMvMTkjQXIwMDYwNw==&Mode=Gif&Locale=english-skin-custom

Hi, I'm not sure if you know who I am but my husband and I served our missions with Layton. My name is Mimi Hancock. Anyway, so cool that you got good feedback on your article. I too enjoy writing. I emailed the addy of our blog to Layton so you guys could catch up on us. I think the blog is a great thing, don't you? Well, have a great day and ENJOY your Easter Holiday. What a wonderful thing to celebrate; our Savior's Resurrection and all that he did for us, His brothers and sisters.
