Thankful #8

I'm thankful for Visiting Teaching, and for visiting teachers.
I really love this "care for each other, one by one" principle. 
I didn't always feel this way.
I used to dread this calling.
Now, I look forward to being with other sisters.
Women need women, that's for sure.
I'm actually not really great at VT, but I'm getting better.  Many a time, it's the end of the month, and I'm just getting around to thinking of it....but...
I have had some wonderful VT's and I've had some wonderful people to visit.
I come away inspired by each sister and realize  how we need the Lord in all of our lives.
I'm always amazed at how alike we all are.  We all have struggles and challenges and good times and  tears.  We are more alike than different.
Our hearts match.
I'm thankful.

I loved this post! I was just thinking about writing a post on VT last week, because...I just got my VT assignment since moving into the ward over two months ago. You are right, women do need women and I need that association with other sisters. I was so grateful and happy when they handed me that card and I can't wait to get aquainted with my sisters. I can't wait to find out who my VT are either.

After you left today I was thinking how lucky I am to have you as my VT. I truly appreciate you and all you do for me.
