I have decided that teaching is great fun. It’s a great responsibility, yes, but I learn enough much in the process that it’s something I look forward to each month. Last month I printed things out to tape up on the board — This month I used the chalkboard instead. It was actually my first time attempting chalk-usage, and I’ve got a bit to learn.
Like, if you want to write something on the board ahead of time, plan to be at church a half-hour early. I planned today to be 15 minutes early, thinking that would be fine, but I ended up walking in to Relief Society as it was starting. Nice. (I take that back. Sarcasm doesn’t transfer well through the written word, so I’ll just put it plain: it was WAY frustrating to drag a reluctant 2 yr. old into nursery, and to be hauling Eagle, a globe, and our 4 bags at the same time. Where’s John when I need him, dangit?)
Pres. Uchtdorf spoke at the Relief Society Broadcast last night, too. It was wonderful. I went to the Conference Center for it, and wow. I haven’t been to a meeting like that (in person) in a while. At one moment, I felt connected with dear friends far away, knowing that they were likely participating in the same broadcast, via satellite. I love the way the gospel connects me with all my sisters, regardless of how far away or how long it’s been since I’ve seen them. Blogs are good for that, too, but the gospel is even better. 😉
