Today I got a new Calling in our ward. I was released as the Webelos leader, Achievement Days leader, and Relief Society teacher. I was called to be the new 1st Councilor in the Primary Presidency.
I went into the bathroom during the rest hymn. The restroom has a little room attached to it with a soft chair where mothers can sit with their babies. I saw one of my AD day girls sitting in there crying. I wasn't sure what to do! I knelt down by the chair and asked her what was the matter. She looked up at me and said she was sad I wasn't going to be her leader anymore! I couldn't believe it! I sat down next to her in the big soft chair and we talked about how much fun we had together and I told her she and the other girls were what made AD so much fun. I told her it was her willing attitude that made me a good leader. I reminded them that the new AD leader is a really great, fun lady (truly!). After we both dried our tears, we went back in to Sac Mtg. together. They really are such a fun group of girls-the kind of group that is easy to plan good things for.
I have really enjoyed having minimal responsibilities on Sunday. I enjoy Gospel Doctrine and RS each week. But I knew a change was coming my way and I haven't been in Primary for a while. Since a large percentage of the kids are my own biological children (ha) I guess it makes sense. Those same AD girls are of course in Primary too, along with lots of other terrific kids. The former Presidency has been brilliant and it should make it pretty easy for us to ease right in! Wish me luck! :)
