A Special Visitor

I met Sister Wixom - General Primary President - on Christmas at Primary Children's Hospital. She invited me to call her and have her come visit our primary.  I decided to call her secretary(Becky) about 2 weeks ago. She said that she would talk to my bishop and Sister Wixom to see when would be a good time.  Becky called me last Monday (Jan. 23) to let me know that Sister Wixom would be coming yesterday (Jan. 29). I was so excited!
       Sister Wixom arrived just as we were starting Primary. She walked in and you could just feel the spirit that was with her. I introduced her to my counselors and secretary. We welcomed her and sang a song for her. After the opening prayer, song, and talk, it was time for sharing time. I taught sharing time.  It was the best sharing time that I have ever taught. It wasn't because of me, but because of the spirit that was there. I'm sure part of that was because I had prepared all week to teach, but a big part was because of Sister Wixom. It was an amazing experience!
     During Sr. Primary, Sister Wixom took a few moments and talked to the children. She told them about how we had met. She said that when I told her that I was Primary President in our ward, she felt the spirit whisper  "Ask if you can go visit that primary." It was neat for me to hear her side of the story, because I had felt that I should tell her that I was the Primary President. I know that Heavenly Father wanted her to come visit our primary.
     Sister Wixom also visited the nursery and a class for a little bit. It was so neat to see her interacting with the children and primary leaders. I felt so blessed to have her come. At the end of the meetings, we talked for a few minutes.  She thanked me for letting her come visit and I told her that she is welcome anytime that she wants to come. She also told me "If I can ever do anything for you, please call me." I thought "Wow, here is a woman who has a HUGE amount of responsibility, but yet, she is willing to help me if I ever need anything!" It was a very humbling experience. I feel so blessed to be serving as Primary President. I love the spirit that is in Primary and the sweetness of the children. I truly love each of the children. This was truly an experience that I won't forget!
