When I was in San Antonio with my mom and sisters, I told them that I had this feeling that there was something coming for our family but I was not sure what it was- church, work, family... who knows what.
Well, this picture was taken the day some of that feeling came to pass.
Actually, the Sunday before about 9:45 pm I got a message asking if my husband and I could meet with the stake president on Wednesday night. Peter was traveling the whole week so after a few more tests and a phone call at 10 from a high councilman it was set to meet on Saturday morning. This allowed me the whole week to wonder what was in store. By the end of the week, I was convinced I was likely in trouble for saying or doing something or really I had no idea. No, that was not the case but I was called to be the 2nd counselor in the Stake RS Presidency. I met the new president that night at the adult meeting for Stake Conference - she was sitting in front of us- and she was so nice! When I told he who I was, she said, "Oh you are the name on the paper." Apparently, she had a list of some sort and she said my name stuck out to her and she knew that is who she needed to have. This was a tender mercy to me- I knew the Lord knew who I was and that he had a work for me to do.
I am so sad to not be a ward missionary anymore but I am so grateful that I can still be a missionary no matter what my calling is.
Isn't my family so cute! Thank you camera timer.
