1Mar 2015—I had a wonderful birthday! I felt so loved! It was wonderful to talk to all my children—phone and/or google chat. My husband bought me some new running shoes. President and Sister Berry hosted a birthday dinner at the mission home with Sisters Johnson/Walker, Elder and Sister Spencer, Nielson, Bird, and Clare. I wanted a homemade cake so under protest CP helped make “The best cake in the world”—with a “65” and “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” candles. I made a wish and blew out all the candles so it has to come true. I feel so grateful for the words of the prophets to guide my life to help me repent and improve my life, my family, this mission, my time with Elder Bean and all missionaries, my friends, and lastly—Medicare kicks in today. . I was awake during the night and read: “The real manifestation of God’s love is His Commandments.” My comment: So much pain, sorrow, and suffering are prevented when we keep the Commandments—because He loves us he shows us the way to a joyful life.
|At senior district Family Home Evening they sang Happy Birthday to me--how do you like those sun glasses.|
|Elder Bean didn't like the idea when I told him I wanted a homemade cake but we worked together to make this chocolate cake topped with Oreo crumbs --yum.|
