Yesterday, I invited the children that wanted to, to miss some of school and join me in attending the viewing for President Monson.
The viewing went from 9 a.m to 8 pm. I knew the evening would be busy, so I made plans to go in the morning. We attempted to leave at 8:30, and we were an hour behind. We were downtown and parking at 10:17. I wasn't sure how many hours to pay for. I assumed it would be less than an hour, but wasn't sure... I took a gamble and paid for an hour and we went in. Note to self, you've got till 11:17. The Conference Center with flag at half mast.
Here is a link to watch it if you'd like, or some excerpts here. My final take away from President Monson's exemplarary life - Do good. Paint a bright spot on your soul by doing good somewhere each day. Love others and serve others and do good.
