The priesthood leaders in our singles ward have a specific calling to lead our ward, often times there wives come along for the ride to support, they don't have to come, they don't have to participate and stay out late and take part of all our crazy shenanigans, but the past few years I've been in singles ward the wives of our leaders have gone above and beyond, and I would like them to know how much I appreciate all they do and the great influence they are in my life.
Carol Merril, Jane Payne, Allison Black, Lora Bailey, and Grandma Byington! This is why you are my heroes!
Ward dinners would not be possible with out all of your expertise, and every other Sunday when we have linger longer I'm fairly certain we would never eat were it not for their contributions. Relief Society lessons would struggle without their wise inputs! And I'm 99.9% sure without Sis. Bailey and Sis. Payne's matchmaking skills anyone would be dating at all!
These ladies are thrown in the midst of all our craziness and they love and take care of us even when some of us are completely nuts! I love them for sacrificing their free time to help keep things running smoothly, and I'm appreciative of the examples of what an Eternal Marriage should be like. It reminds me of what I'm holding out for!
Thanks again Singles Ward Mommala's..... You are my heroes!
Bro. and Sis. Payne
