A "lucky" pick
My son finds sitting in primary very difficult. Lately he has started to show some improvement because he has decided that he would like to have a turn during sharing time. Today he had his arm held up as high as he could because he wanted a turn very badly. His teacher reminded him that he needed to sit reverently so that he could get a turn. The Primary President was choosing children using the sticks in an effort to make her choosing as fair as possible. My son tried to sit as still as he possibly could so that she would call on him. I quickly said a prayer that he would be chosen and his good behavior would be rewarded. The next stick the Primary President chose said his name. She made the comment that it was a lucky pick because I think she was silently rooting for his name to be picked as well since she knows how difficult it is for him to sit still. I knew that it wasn't a "lucky" pick at all, rather it was an answer to a prayer and a very special blessing for a little boy learning to be reverent in primary.
