Elder L. Tom Perry and US!
Well dang would you look at this! We were so blessed today to have lunch with L. Tom Perry!--yep it did happen! We feel so blessed. He presided at our Stake Conference. I was able to have a small part in making the lunch boxes cute and stuff ---I had a connection with the Stake President's wife who is my dearest friend and I also visit teach her--so shoot---she asked for my help! I jumped at the chance when i new there may be a small chance we could eat with him too---and YEAH she asked! It was truly so much fun! He sat there and talked with us for about 45min. and was just as normal as blueberry pie! I feel it was so fun just to get a rise out of him when he saw all the decor on his lunch box and the napkin ring holder---he looked right at me and just said, "WOW" --we all laughed--but hey he noticed!
On a more serious note--truly his message was profound--you can't help but love him and feel something tremendous when you are in his presence. The spirit truly manifests to you that this is one of the 12 apostles---wow-- and how we were so humbled to be with him--for as long as we could!
