So last night was our Young Women in Excellence night. We have been working on it for WEEKS. All this week I was busy getting last minute things together, and then on Wednesday I got super sick and was unable to go. OF COURSE. I was soooo upset. I knew my girls had been working really hard on their projects, and I wanted to be there so bad to not only see them, but to tell my YW how PROUD of them I was, and how much I loved them.
Later that night, after YW in Excellence, I heard a knock on my door. In walked most of my YW with their projects. Oh it just made me so happy and really loved. They each showed me their beautiful projects, and relayed the whole night for me, so that I could know how it went. How awesome are my girls?????
I really love my Young Women. Yes, I will admit that at times I struggle, but I love these girls so much and have really enjoyed the opportunity to get closer to them and to have so much fun with them. It makes me happy that they want to hang out with me and can't wait to tell me whatever exciting things have happened to them. I love that they know that they can come to me for comfort too.
It really was such a joy to see them last night and to have come over so I could personally tell them how proud of them I was. I feel so blessed to be their leader. They really made my year!
*Special thanks to Laura and Kristin, my counselors. They have always been such a great help. On Wednesday they completely took over my share of duties, and were such a blessing to me. I love you guys!
