So I am going to apologize just a little up front, this is a post about me. I would also like to apologize because unless you are a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints this post will probably not make much sense or you wont understand some of the terms, and for that I am sorry.

So about 1 month ago it was announced that our bishopric would be changing. I wasn't really worried about it. Until Monday night when we got a call to go meet with the stake president. I think deep down I knew some changes were coming but I was in denial. I have only been Young Womens President for 10 months, so it could possibly be coming now. Well I was wrong. My husband was called as 2nd councilor in the bishopric. (Could be worse he could have been Bishop) They told me that night that I would need to be released from my calling. While sad I was at peace with it. I knew the changes coming to our family is what the Lord wants for us at this time. I guess to say that I was sad was an understatement. I was/am heartbroken! So Rip(I call him that because he can fall asleep anywhere any time, even standing up) was sustained as 2nd councilor, but it has taken a few weeks for me to be released because of General Conference and then a vacation. So a whole month of ups and downs, and dealing with a whole lot of tears and other emotions as to having to leave a calling I dearly. I have definately been comforted by the spirit. I was officially released on Sunday and the new president called. I really am excited for her and know that she is the one who is supposed to take over at this time. As I sit here my first Wednesday night without an activity to go to or carry out, I find myself once again a little heart broken. However I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is what is right for us, but I just needed to take a moment and really write this down. Maybe I just need a few words of encouragement from all of you. Either way I hope I havent bored you to tears, and that you will come back. I have after pictures of Tia I need to share with all of you!

I remember the first weeks of being released were so hard... I felt like my new "family" (because that is how you see the girls), were all out having fun without me. It is hard to let go, but the nice thing is those relationships you cultivated are always there. :) And you will still get the random text from them now and then that will make your heart happy. :) Thanks for all your work with the YW.
