Change is Good

I love change.

I love new beginnings.

I love Mondays, and September and Mornings.

I love a fresh start.

And yesterday marked the first day of another new beginning for me.

For the last almost 5 years I have served in a position with the young women of our church. It has been an amazing experience which I have loved and will cherish forever.

I have served on committees with both teenage girls and boys. Gone camping with the girls, trained them and their leaders, laughed, danced, chaperoned dances, duct taped holey pants and short tops, cried, loved, been loved, been hated, tie dyed, painted, and taught. I have worn baseball hats, dresses, jeans, tiaras and even once a bikini over long johns. (Yikes!) I have taught lessons and learned lessons. Opened my heart, felt it break and felt it grow.

Each person who has come into it has added beauty and color.

To each of you whom I have served with... Thank you for it all.

It has been an adventure.

Here's to the next one.

Thanks for sharing! Great post. I'm glad you are so excited to start your new adventure. It was fun to work with you, in a roundabout sort of way. I'll miss seeing you at the dances!

I am not good with change at all! And having worked with the youth myself, I know it will be hard for you to leave this calling behind because so much of your heart was in it. But, it is true new adventures lie ahead. Do you have a new calling yet?
