For the past 14 months, I've had the privileged to serve as a member of our ward's primary presidency. This was my first calling in over a year, and although I was excited to be doing something more than "just going to church" I was also nervous and overwhelmed, a feeling that I'm sure many would get from this calling. Reflecting back now, I have a much stronger testimony of the Savior's love for me -- and it all is because of my time in Primary. I know that I was put in that calling for personal growth -- it feels impossible to not grow in spirit when you are around God's children. Heavenly Father knows me and knows what I need and I'm so grateful that I was looked after by him. I am also so very grateful for the friendships that I have made. The four sisters that I served with have become very dear to me and I will cherish their friendships forever.
I didn't realize how hard it would be to leave my ward family. Moving as a youth, I was emotionally devastated every time we had to pack up and leave -- but as an adult ... I've been totally fine with this move! Up until now. I am grateful for my time here; I'm grateful for such a wonderful home and friends who love me and my family. We feel at such peace with our move -- but it still is hard. Very bittersweet.
I have the best job in the whole world -- I am the momma of a GREAT 4 year old who I am over the moon about -- and a beautiful, growing like a weed, little princess who, unbelievably, now is 1 years old! I love my family more than words can express. To make matters even BETTER, I have the best partner in crime that I could ever imagine. I have so much fun with my family and I am working on eternity with them!
