Bitter...Sweet

I am feeling a little bitter today because yesterday I got released from my calling as the camp director. I loved this calling so much because I got to know some of the best leaders and I really loved the girls. The young women's program is just amazing and I am so sad that I will no longer be any part of it.

For the sweet part, I got a new calling as achievement days leader. I am really excited and nervous for this new calling. I can't wait to get to know the girls (I will be with the 9-10 yr olds) and I will look forward to building new friendships with those I will be serving with. I really don't know much about achievement days so I feel a little overwhelmed but am excited for the challenge. If you have any advice I'm sure I can use it.

Hey, I am just reminding you about my book party tomorrow night. Will you also remind Kaylee and your brothers girlfriend. Sorry about you getting released as the camp director. I am in the young womens and it IS a great calling. I am sure you will do an awesome job in this new position. See you tomorrow!!

You are going to be so awesome for those girls. I guess it's kind of like doing girls camp activities, only on a weekly basis, and with younger girls. I think it would be a fun calling...and you will do great!

My mom is the achievment day leader and she just loves it! She just had a mother daughter luncheon that was so cute!! I'm sure you will love it!

By the way that was total inspiration and we will come visit you and help you feel prepared and I just know you will really inspire those girls as they get ready for YW. You are a wonderful person who people can look up to and I know you will be able to share wonderful ideas for activities and you will bring the spirit to this calling too! Thanks for accepting. I will be seeing you soon.

So who is the new camp director? Well, I hate to say it, but let's tell the truth. You just didn't have as much fun this year without me and so you asked to be released. Just Kidding. You'll do great with the acheivement day girls!!
