New Hook, Same Fish

Did I mention they released me from being Primary President two weeks ago?
Wait, wait, before you get too excited and happy for me...
I was called to be Relief Society President in the same interview.
Oh yes, I believe this is called, "out of the frying pan and into the fire."
Thus far - all two weeks of it - haven't been too bad; I taught a lesson today that got positive reviews but there's a lot more to this position than the last one and I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. For when it gets hard or complicated or when someone dies.
To make matters worse, because of Primary callings, I haven't been to Sunday School or Relief Society in nearly 15 years. The whole system has changed since I last attended regularly, and now I'm in charge of it.
Oy.
After one meeting with the previous president I know more than I ever wanted to about people in the ward. And it's barely begun.

This is me and it's going to get interesting.

Here's the scary thought: these are the ones you know about. Nothing about the ones who are not saying anything. I'm just sayin'...

Is it wrong to tell you I'm sorry? That's the one calling I least want. I've been both counselors, but president...bleck.

My condolences, and also you are the perfect person for the job. If I die, I want it to be in your ward.
