Guys are great, too, but I'm just so grateful for the women in my ward right now. We had our Christmas program, "Women at the Well", last night. (yay! now i can stop mentioning it in every single post!) It was pretty crazy, and I was stressed for about three minutes when six people came up to me with the exact same problem. And sure, I was still kind of running around like a chicken with its head cut off for the half-hour preceding the program, but that wasn't stress. That was just me being myself.
In the end, it went really well and very smoothly, and all the women there were uplifted and inspired. Because I was the pianist for everybody and Heather told everyone I had been in charge of it, I got a lot of compliments. Compliments are great, and they made me feel good, but heaven knows I wouldn't have been able to do it without all the awesome sisters who agreed to participate. Our narrators were excellent and helped the women savor the messages, and the singers all worked so hard to bring the Spirit in with their beautiful voices. There were tons of holiday desserts brought by talented ladies, and we had a couple of sisters who spent their entire afternoon making the gym look gorgeous with trees, lights, nativities, and other decorations.
Thank you, ladies. You make me look good.
