I cried at work today.

No biggie.

You might think I'm a loser. But, I would (and likely will) do it again.

A short while ago, I got a job as a teacher at the MTC. So far, it has been unbelievable. Basically, I get to do something that I love and be involved in something I'm passionate about. Brilliant!

This morning, I was crouched down by a couple of missionaries who had just finished a role-play and I was discussing with them how they felt about it. As I asked one Elder how he felt, he looked me in the eye and I could almost see things begin to click in his head. Tears filled his eyes as he spoke, but he managed to keep himself composed as he shared his experience with me. As he went on, I realized that small tears were rolling down my own cheeks.

Initially, I had the urge to quickly hide my tears. I didn't want anyone to see me in my weakness. Then, as flashback after flashback of my own mission sped through my mind, I thought to myself, "Why not show a little emotion?"

So I did.

As I walked to my car after work, I was elated.

Made my day.


  1. I love that you love your job.
    And since it's so great, I guess I won't be bitter that you no longer work with me. :)

  2. Love you Hannah! UPS will always have a (small) place in my heart. :)

  3. such a sweet post - i know you are a GREAT teacher!

  4. All I want to say is, I want to be more like you. Miss you buddy!
