I sat there at church a couple weeks ago next to the sweet little boy I help in Primary thinking to myself, “I love my callings.” I get to be this boy’s “special helper” during sharing time (he has “Williams Syndrome”) and I just got called to teach Activity Days. Elle’s in my group. I’ve been in there just long enough to fall totally in love with my cute little group of girls. They are darling and we have all these big plans.I almost knocked on wood right then and there thinking about how great it was that I got to be with my kids and husband so much because I’m not in a presidency right now, so few meetings, etc.
As I sat there thinking how perfect these callings were for me, my mind wandered to how much I love Dave’s calling. He’s one of the Gospel Doctrine teachers and he’s so good at it. I love the discussions we’ve had because of what he’s reading and thinking about.
So it was completely inevitable that we should get a phone call from the stake presidency that afternoon asking for a meeting. We both just looked at each other like deer in headlights wondering who was going to get a “change.”
Well, it was me.
Stake primary counselor. Yep, me and all these amazing women, all together. Hmmm. One of these things is not like the other. BUT, although it took me a few days to get used to the idea of being over cub scouts again, envisioning myself speaking at the stake baptisms with giant red nervous splotches all over my face and losing Austin and my Activity Day girls, I’m thinking it’s going to be good. These women I get to work with are amazing and Primary is awesome. I’m going to learn so much…
and cub scouts…gotta love those cubs and all the round table cheers. Yep, it’s gonna be good.
