Something really really small and totally insignificant to the rest of the world, but hugely significant to me, happened.
Today I was listed as an SO. SO means skating official. It wasn't on anything important. Just on a list for a scrimmage. But it meant a lot to me.
I have so far to go in learning to ref and learning to skate. But today my Head Ref put me on the list to be a skating official.
Now comes the hard part, proving that it wasn't a mistake.
