first day on the job

Well yesterday was my first official day on the job. Last Sunday I was called as the new primary president, so this past week I've just been busy getting started. Strangely enough, I'm actually excited about it. I have two really great counselors, and I know they have my back. I was almost overly prepared yesterday, because I wanted it to go smoothly. I was conducting, and doing sharing time. I had my short talk, the songs, the kids that were giving talks, Scripture, prayer,article of faith,and all that typed out, so I would follow the routine, and not skip anything. I printed it all out in a nice organized format, and ran out the door to make it on time. Problem was, I ran out without grabbing the paper. Oh nuts. I kind of stumbled my way through opening exercises, but I think the Sharing time went ok.I guess the important thing is that I know the church is true, and I love the kids in my primary. I am grateful for the chance I have to serve in a new capacity. I was the primary chorister for 3 years, and I loved that, but I feel like this will be a good opportunity for me to grow in other ways. I hope I can live up to the expectations of the children, because they are so special.
