calling

i haven't posted in awhile and it occurred to me i may have not told all my friends about my new calling at church. since my friends read the blog i figured this might be an easy way to inform those i may have neglected. sorry! anyway, it's also a chance for me to get sympathy notes and possibly/hopefully promises of help and suggestions. this month i got called to be one of the activities committee co-chairs. i no longer get to organize the humanitarian service projects - or as one guy likes to call me - i'm no longer the service lady. now i'm the activity lady. i need to get on the new calling though - figure out the people on my committee - give them a holler - build some relationships - and hopefully do some planning. here's hoping i learn to love it. everyone says i'll be great since i plan so many parties, but truthfully i don't feel like i plan that many - and they're usually pretty low key and easy to throw together with the help of quality friends. i guess i just need to take that attitude with these bigger activities. my old co-chair in the humanitarian calling told me that my energy was motivating for her - i'm hoping that the same can be true in this new calling. here's to motivating energy!

You will be great! You've got a good co-chair - Kent will be very willing to pitch in and help, and then the rest is just about delegating. And knowing you, you'll have all sorts of fun ideas and a positive approach.

Yeah! You can do it. You love to throw parties. It's just a party for church.

i like your perspective cindy. i decided i'll just have to act as if EVERYONE is my closest friend and invite them. in fact, i thought about going around to people and personally "inviting" them - emails, phone calls, just in person stuff. and then tell them that they can get all the details in the ward program. something like that. really it feels like i have to just go out and make a bunch more friends now. luckily i can say i generally enjoy doing that.
