Bittersweet Sunday

I know I should be prepared for change, living in a rapidly growing city, but it's still not easy. I love my calling. I was just getting the hang of it, and I love the people who come to choir practice each Sunday, so of course, it was time to make a new ward here in the McKinney Stake. They created the Melissa ward this past Sunday and the Stake Pres. said that we had enough people to make 3 new wards, but we don't have the building space! There's a building currently under construction only about 5 minutes away, and will done early next year, and another that will be started soon up in Melissa, but until then there's nothing! All buildings are full to capacity! The new Melissa ward will meet in the East Allen building, and a ward that used to meet there will have to meet in a Plano building! For those of you who don't know, Melissa is about 15 minutes NORTH of where I live! Yikes! Along with the new ward boundaries, they did some shifting in the 5 McKinney wards. Because of where I live, and the way my previous boundaries were drawn, I had a feeling that we would change, and we did. We are now part of McKinney 2nd Ward. I know many people in that ward, so it's not a big deal, and it's better for Anna because all of her school boundaries are now included in our new ward boundaries. I'm just sad to leave the wonderful McKinney 5th Ward. I found out about the change before church started, and I cried during most of choir practice. I also cried when I told mom about the change. It's not fair to do this to a pregnant woman! Life goes on, and I'm sure the 2nd Ward will be great, it will just take some getting used to. This is now the third ward that I've been in here in McKinney in only the past 2 1/2 years since we bought our house!

I'm sorry, Linna! I hope you love your new ward, and who knows, maybe the current choir director's tenure is about up and you could take over...

Yeah, that stinks Melinda! But I'd blame the pregnancy on taking it so hard. Things always tend to work themselves out! Good luck in the new ward and good luck finding a new babysitter! I feel your pain!
