This morning started with the phone ringing as Trent Hall asked for someone to give the closing prayer in sacrament meeting – I accepted the invitation. Laura and I decided that it would be prudent to keep most of the family home rather than spread last week’s flu/RSV type bug to the rest of the ward since everyone who had been sick was probably still contagious. I went to church with only Mariah and Laura asked me to take her place in the library since she was staying home (having been among the sick this week). As I settled in to my chair for the beginning of priesthood meetings a member of our bishopric approached me and asked if I would lead the music there.
I’m trying to decide – is it a good thing that I’m able to do all those things so that I can help out in many different ways, or is a bad thing that I have a wide variety of skills so that I have no excuse to decline?
