Yesterday was El Presidante’s last primary program (BTW, if you had a kid who’d graduated to YM at some point during the year prior, would they be in the primary program in your ward… shwondering?).
As I looked at him (and yes, he was probably eyeing ways to die rather then sit there and sing the Wise Man and the Foolish Man)… and just thought about ALL the people who have put SO much time into him.
Sure, I put a lot into him, but I brought him here, he’s my responsibility.
But all the teachers, and now as I’m looking at the youth program I’m suddenly SO thankful for all the time and effort people will be pouring into him. I think, because we don’t live near family, I take these relationships extra special and truly appreciate all the effort.
I had a friend recently post all the reasons that she has left the church.
While I disagree with her reasoning and almost every point she made in her “broadcast” I also just don’t how I could parent without the support of the church and also the gospel. It really backs me up 100%.
I feel very lucky.
So, if you’ve ever given C a little of your time, I am giving you a little internet hug. 🙂
