Everything happens for a reason...

RIGHT?!?
So, as many of you know, I have been in the Primary Presidency, serving as secretary, for about 8 months now...and I just got released today!!! Have you ever had a calling that you absolutely loved and looked forward to fulfilling? For me, this was MY calling and I truly, truly loved it! Me being released was seriously quite a shock...and a difficult pill to swallow! I know I am having this baby soon and I know things are about to be turned upside down but I never imagined that I would be released from my calling in order to take care of my family. Don't get me wrong, family is and always will be MY first priority, but this Primary calling was really important to me as well. I have such a better appreciation for our Primary organization and such a love for all of the kids as well...I will miss being in Primary every single Sunday for a long, long time. I do however, believe that things always happen for a reason...the reason for this particular life event is yet to be determined and I am sure I will appreciate my lesson learned even more...but for right now, I am just plain sad! For all of my ward friends...I will miss your kids and their happy faces! And, I am so sorry you had to see me cry for the entire day today...it was a really sad day for me and I am really, really hormonal!

don't worry, you'll have a new calling to love soon, I'm sure.

Sorry, callings can be such tricky things. I often wonder why things happen the way they do. I still don't know the "why" for a lot of it...But I do know that as time goes by it gets easier.

Oh Amy, I'm so sorry! I hated being released too, but I knew it had to happen (what with me having already moved and stuff). Maybe you'll get put back in scouts:)

I'm so sorry! It breaks my heart to hear it made you cry. Maybe you can become the #1 substitute primary teacher or just ditch sunday school and RS and go sit in primary anyway!

We can always just send our kids over to your house instead!

Amy - I bet you were the best at Primary - BUT you'll be the best at something else now - No tears "don't cry because it's over - smile because it happened!"

did you know you were being released before they released you? I don't like that when you are sitting in sacrament and you hear you are being released that moment....

Okay, so I feel bad asking a question on here.... since I rarely go back and check comment sections... so write me at fb or email me. (click on my name.)
