Farewell, Bill.....We will miss you!

O.K......he's not dying. We are not divorcing. Bill just got put in as 1st counselor in the bishopric. The blood went out of my face when Bill called me on Tuesday and told me we had an appointment with the stake president. That's never good. We have gone through every emotion this week; humbleness, shock, exhaustion, happiness, disbelief.....and couple of pints of Ben & Jerry's. I have no doubt he will be great, he always is in his callings. I doubt my ability to sit through sacrament with 3 wiggly kids without help. I doubt my ability to have him spend whole Sundays at the church. I'm a wimp.
Congrats, Bill. You will be great.....see you in 5 years.

Wow! Uh, I'm not quite sure what to say... Congratulations? Good luck? Hope Liz survives? Well, I'm sure Bill will be an awesome counselor and Liz will handle it all beautifully. So who of our friends will be married to the first Bishop? Kelly?

Brent was the 1st counselor in our NJ ward. The appropriate response is good luck!!

I agree with Amy. Eric is on the tail end of his 1st counselorship. But I think Kelly definitely will have braggin rights for 1st bishop. And she can have them!

Liz said...

Amen!

BTW, sitting through Sacrament meeting with wiggly kids is the easy part. Not to be the bearer of bad news...but it is.
