Church News: What would be your ideal birthday gift?
Thomas S. Monson: Do something for someone else on that day to make his or her life better. Find someone who is having a hard time or is ill or lonely and do something for them. That's all I would ask.
Tuesday the 21st is Thomas S. Monson's birthday. If you want to give him a birthday gift, do something for someone else that day.
So despite my sickness my kids and I made a plan to serve as much as we can.
This morning we took 3 birthday gifts and 1 baby gift to friends. While at Wal-Mart we all grabbed some shopping carts from the parking lot and returned them to the store. When we returned home we made over 100 cookies and 40 muffins. The kids helped bag them up and we passed them out around our neighborhood.
All 4 kids loved celebrating President Monson's birthday. And they can't wait to celebrate it again. It was such a great day!
