I was sitting in church this week, and I suddenly remembered all of my old church friends, and missed them something awful! I've wanted to write a post about each and every one of them and all of the things I love about them and everything they've ever done to make my life a better one...but that would be a very long post and a very extensive list. So, instead, I just had myself a little cry right there in the pew and probably freaked out the good people of my new ward!
Anyway, yesterday, much to our surprise, a package arrived for the kids from their lovely former ward Primary President. It was filled with notes and drawings from all of their old Primary pals. There was also a group photo which they had all signed. One of the primary kids was "hiding" in the shot, and the children had to find her like in a "Where's Waldo" poste It was so sweet!
This is the same sister who used to be my kids' nursery leader, who always sent letters or personally stopped by our house if we ever missed church. She was such an example of love, service, and compassion!
We ARE doing better every day. But it's still heart-warming to be remembered this way. The other night, during family prayer, Scarlett actually said, "We're grateful we moved to Cranberry," which shocked both Steve and me, but we'll take it!
I just thought this was such a sign of true love and friendship and great leadership, and I thought I'd pass this on for Primary leaders out there.
