bittersweet

I thought I should mention that I was released last Sunday from Young Womens. It's bittersweet. I love these girls. I adore the Young Women leaders.


Being in Relief Society today was a really foreign feeling. It was a fantastic lesson and I left feeling uplifted and reflective. They took the time to welcome me back, which was so kind and thoughtful. I'd missed the sisterhood of the Relief Society during the last three years. But it was still weird being there.

The same Spirit that calls you to a position, also calls for you to be released. It was time for me to move on.

If I just didn't miss these girls so much....

Heidi, we are going to miss you so much, you can always come back and visit! You were so awesome in YW, I know the Lord has other great things in store for you! Thanks for everything you did! I am glad that we became friends through YW!

Some day down the road I just know I am going to be in your shoes. Well, welcome back to Relief Society! I love your face in that picture - classic! :)

I pray for and dread being released every day.

And I miss Relief Society SO DANG MUCH.

Joel and I got called to teach the Sunbeams a few months ago. Before that, I'd spent a good 8 years in RS callings and wondered what I was supposed to do with a bunch of 4 year olds. Now, though, I wonder what I ever did without them. It's funny how that works. Regardless of where we're called to serve, eventually that's where we most want to be. Keep us posted!
