We had our annual ward Thanksgiving dinner tonight. A fun time was had by all. I kept remembering last year's dinner when I was hugely pregnant with Harry and just about to welcome him to the world. I must say that I enjoyed this year's dinner much more since I was actually able to breathe and fit more than a few bites into my squished stomach. I think that Harry enjoyed getting his food through his mouth rather than second hand through my blood.
While I was there I got a new calling. Previously I was working with the Young Women but now I have the exciting calling of Nursery Leader. I will be doing what I do every day (which is wrangle toddlers) only I will have more toddlers to wrangle. I think one of my projects will be to clean out the toy closet. There are a ton of broken toys that need to be cleaned out. This has been a hard calling to fill so I really was not too surprised that they called me to do it.
I am ready for a change. I have been feeling like my family needs more time and it was really affecting how much time I could commit to Young Women. This will be a low effort calling, mostly showing up every week which is my specialty. One thing that always amazes me is how strong the Spirit is when am in interviews with priesthood leaders. It makes me more aware that Heavenly Father is very aware of the things that are going on with each of his children.
