Ohhhhhh boy

You know how we have a shiny new ward?  Our bishop asked me to be the primary president.  That means I am responsible for the children 18 months-12 years old.  And I don't know most of them.  Yet.

I have spent time thinking, Really, me?  I have spent time crying (my default modus operandi it seems).  And I have spent time praying.  A lot of that too. 

Here's what I know.

I have felt deep inside that Heavenly Father loves these children, most of whom I don't know.  Yet.  I have felt His love for me as well.  I feel like if I will allow it, I will be guided and helped.

I feel like I will love these children.

Soon.  Very soon.

I thought of you so much Sunday! When I saw the blog post this morning I knew you made it. :) Everything else will be a piece of cake. Or something like that.

OH Boy! That's a BIG calling. I have no doubt that you'll be wonderful though! How on earth do you pick counselors though when you might not know the parents of these unknown children. Have you invested in kneepads?

I think I will pray for you :) But I am confused on when you became old enough to be Primary President??

Oh, and I am Whitney... I think Google was mistaken in calling me unknown. I am very known

Congratulations...? I always thought it was so funny that people say that! You are going to be amazing, Thelma!

I know no one will see this but you but I'm so proud of my little sister. You are a star and a true latter-day saint!
