Change is Good?

For those of you who don't know I have been in charge of 35 kids at church for the last two and half years. I found out last week that they were releasing me from my calling as Primary President....I cannot tell you how sad I am. When I was first asked to fill this position I was totally shell shocked and couldn't possibly understand how or why they thought I would make a good Primary President. Over time, with the Lords help, I not only enjoyed my church job but grew to love each child as well as all of my staff. I told someone not too long ago that I "loved my calling". Two and a half years ago I wouldn't have believed that was possible. Now I guess the Lord has something else in mind for me. Time will tell. Who knows in a few weeks I may have a new blog post about how totally dumbfounded I am over my new calling.

I would like to publically thank my know who you are. You have done an amazing job and I know that the Lord brought us together. I could never have done it without you! I would also like to congratulate the new ladies will do a great job. You are wonderful wonderful women of faith.

So here is 2009......

I Finally Finished It!

I have been working on my December Daily album all month. I ‘ve been taking pictures and writing stuff down so I could put it all together. My wonderful online friend Michelle actually MADE the book. All I had to do was put the photos and journaling in has been quite a task....but SO worth it. I am really happy with the way it turned out. I know Michelle wants to see it so rather than flood the gallery over at I decided I would post them here on my blog instead. Thanks again Michelle for helping me captrue my memories from this wonderful holiday season.
