Callings

So now that I have called all of my children to tell them about this, I guess it is okay to blog about it.

A week and a half ago I received a phone call. I was asked if I could meet with the bishop that evening. We were sitting around minding our own business and were pretty much settled in for the night. I went ahead and got dressed to meet with the bishop. Knowing that because abe is in the bishopric, the chance of me having a heavy calling was pretty slim. So I was shocked when the bishop extended the call he had in mind; we were wrong. I have had 10 days to get used to this responsibility. So many amazing things have happened during the past few weeks that point to preparation for this calling. When we left the church that night, abe asked me why I was so quiet. I told him that I feel utterly and totally overwhelmed by this responsibility. Being called as the RS President isn't something that any sane person aspires to. But then I guess I never have been totally sane.

Guess since you finally got all your children moved out of the house, you needed a much larger family to take care of. Sad to say but RS has never been my favorite place, I know the older people like Mom absolutely love it though. like Tif-do said, "you will do great" and I know that you will be truly blessed with all the help you need to fulfill this calling.

Congrats - you will do wonderful!! What a stressful calling, but yet, what blessings you will receive from it. I love Relief Society, and feel bad when I have to miss to visit other wards. What a great growing opportunity. Have fun!!
