I so enjoy getting together with friends over lunch…… especially when you haven’t seen them in a while!
Working in the temple has given me the opportunity to make some great friends. Usually, as an Ordinance worker, you get to know the ladies you are partnered with pretty well. Not always as well as you’d like since they change schedules every couple of months and partner you up with different people each time. It’s nice to get to know so many.
However, as a Coordinator or Assistant Coordinator…. you get to know the ladies in those leadership positions pretty well. Since we worked together every week for three years…. we got to be pretty good friends. Lunch today, was with the ladies that I served with as an Assistant Coordinator over a year ago, and also with the ladies who’s place we took. They are the ones that trained us to do our job, so we’ve always been good friends with them too. Since none of us are in the Coordinator callings anymore (at least not at the same temple)…. we decided to get together for lunch so we could visit.
What a great time we had. These are ladies that I really admire….. and they are funny too! It was great to catch up a little on families and what we are each doing now. We probably could have spent several more hours getting caught up and just shooting the breeze.
I’m not sure what it is about women that we are able to form these friendships and a sense of camaraderie for one another. I think it’s just something that women are instinctively born with. We are just social animals! What can I say!
I’m grateful to have spent some time with my temple peeps today. Even though a few of us were unable to come…. it was a good turnout considering that it was a last minute decision to put it together. I’m grateful for each and every one of them and the contribution they’ve made in my life…… even if they may not know it! Let’s do it again ladies…… really soon!
I am Grateful! How are you?
