Weight Lifted

I realize you all know that I was released from Primary a few weeks ago. 

Last week I was busy attending a lovely open house for Chris, and missed the true feeling of being Primary-free.

But today, I experienced the whole thing.

And it was lovely.

I sang the closing hymn in sacrament meeting,

I read scripture and enjoyed a great Sunday School Lesson,

I was told to put away my phone in Relief Society,

And I was GIVEN a treat instead of GIVING OUT treats!

Delightful!!

I'll be honest, primary was getting too tough for me the last few months.  And although I didn't ask to be released I know that it was obvious I was needing it.  The craziness, the meanness, the unthoughtfulness of some of the people in primary really brought me down.

But I can tell you today, I'm on the up swing!  My bucket is being filled, instead of drained.

I think this blog will benefit more from this change too ---
