It's official

Yesterday, I was released from my calling as Primary President. I've known for about a month and a half that it was coming. My husband was called to be the Elders Quorum President and in our stake, they generally don't like having a husband and wife serve as the President of an organization at the same time. It makes sense.

I served for just over 3 years. Three years that I loved. I worked with 2 amazing counselors, 2 amazing secretaries, countless teachers, and I can't remember how many different music people. ☺ (No, not 2 secretaries at the same time. The first one, who happened to be my sister in law, moved.) They were such a help to me and I love and appreciate all of them. I can't adequately express it in words and so, I'll just have to leave it at that. Just know that I love all of you.

I can't and won't say that I was thrilled when I received the calling. I didn't want to have to be around my children each and every Sunday. I know that sounds harsh, but I thought that they would misbehave if I was in there. I was pretty sure it was going to be terrible. I was wrong. Avery had some adjusting to do when she first came into Sunbeams, but it wasn't terrible. My boys had their sarcastic moments, but they do that to everyone and so I can't complain. I may not have wanted to do it in the beginning, but I wouldn't trade the experience now for anything. I learned so very much. The number one thing being to appreciate the plain and simple truths of the gospel.

I'll miss Primary, but I am truly very excited to see what path I'll be walking down next.

It sounds like it was bittersweet for you.

And thanks for helping with the Snuggie drive!

It was a bitter-sweet moment for me as well. You did an AMAZING job. My kids know that you love them. I know that you love them. You have a beautiful testimony that you have shared with them. You have helped them learn and grow. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you did.

I know just how you feel. That's how I felt about being Primary Chorister. I wasn't excited at first, but when it came time to be released I was so sad. I was just called to be the ward organist and I am REALLY not excited. I'm scared. I wonder if my feelings will change with the calling as well.

I loved serving with you as well when I was one of your music people.

Big change! Hopefully you'll get a little break before they give you another big calling! :)

Wow, it's going to feel so weird for you to go to Relief Society!!

I hope your next calling is as satisfying to you.

Rosie, in the 16+ years I have been able to attend Relief Society, I think I've gone for a combined total of 18 months. I've always been somewhere else. We'll see if it lasts.

Aw :) Glad you are getting a break. I am whining about being a primary teacher for the last 18 months and have reached a point where I am ready to move on. Thanks for the reminder that I need to get a grip and stop whining! I have an easy job!
