Primary President- Week Number Uno

We had our first presidency meeting and we had a blast.  I am so incredibly grateful for the women that I am serving with.  They are all so different and so much fun!  We are going to do great things, so watch out, world.  
I am still alive and did not have a massive panic attack on Sunday.  I seriously considered it when the pianist told me she wouldn't be there- 10 minutes before Primary started and then asked me "Should I find someone to play?"  Um, yes.  Maybe you should have done that YESTERDAY.  But, I digress.  I played the piano for her, which is very possibly what kept me from having the aforementioned panic attack.  
I do have to mention - as I did not last entry- that in addition to me being the Primary President, they asked Tim (my eternal pest and companion) to be the Young Men's President.  What?!?!  Not fair.  So, we both had to do the ward council thing on Sunday- which is great, because it means that he has to get out of bed too and I don't have to do it alone.  Ha.
But, my favorite part of all was Sunday.  As nervous and as unsure of myself as I was feeling, I still got up and took a minute to talk to "my kids".  The minute I stood up and looked at their little sweet faces, I knew everything would be alright.  I already love them SO MUCH and cannot wait to get to know each of them better.

El Presidente...

So...as of Sunday, I am officially a Primary President.  WHAT?!?
I struggle enough being a normal person and a Sunbeam teacher and they've put me in charge of other people's children.  WHAT?!?!
As nervous (terrified) as I am, I am also incredibly excited.
I have some great women to serve with and cannot wait to see the things we can accomplish together.
So, in looking for some kind of inspiration, I came across an article about a woman that I knew when I was growing up.  I thought she was incredible then.  Then I came across this article in the Church News from 2004 and realized that if she can do it, so can I.  Thanks Sister Cook.  I still admire you...just so you know.
