Say 'hello' to...

Globe First Ward's newest (and greenest) Relief Society President! I became official today, and I'm sure I won't shake the 'deer in the headlights' look for a while. I am overwhelmed and humbled, and the two things that are preventing me from running for the hills are: A) I know that the Lord knows I can do this, and B) I have an amazing presidency to help me. I am so excited to help the sisters in my ward, and I know I have my work cut out for me.

As I have transitioned through stages in my life, I have anticipated achieving that 'grown-up' feeling. I thought when I got married that I would feel grown-up. Um, no. Then when we bought a house, surely that was a qualification for being grown-up. Well, mostly I just felt like we were two kids playing house. So when I had kids of my own and I still didn't feel grown-up, (not like those other women who seemed so seasoned and experienced) I began to wonder if I would feel like a little girl pretending to know what I'm doing forever! Well, maybe being the Relief Society President (a calling that I thought had some kind of minimum age limit that I hadn't reached yet) will force me to grow up.

Or maybe not. Maybe I'll always feel like a little girl inside. And maybe that's not such a bad thing.

You are an amazing writer. You captivated feelings I've felt many times. Your Bishop was inspired for sure. My son is one lucky dog!
Love, Mom Fran
