Celebrating Our Anniversary

Yesterday marked the 7th wedding anniversary of me and my hubby. It was the 2nd time that we celebrated it here in the Philippines. We bought a goat which my brother Albin butchered and we cooked kaldereta, kilawin and pinapaitan. We had also goulash, chop suey, fruit salad and papaya pickles. While we were cooking, it was raining so hard. I thought the people I invited would not be able to come because of the rain. I didn't invite a whole lot because we didn't cook that much. We invited our neighbors and close friends only and the celebration was held in our carport at 6:00 PM. Before we had dinner, my hubby welcomed and thanked everybody for coming. He quoted some verses in the Bible and just gave a short message. I was waiting for him to call me and speak too but instead he asked one of our guests who is a pastor to bless the foods. Then I stood up and told hubby that I will speak also. First I thanked everybody for coming and then I related to them how my hubby and I met. I told them our love story and how the good Lord had answered my prayers. It's been a long wait for me until I found my life partner whom God had given me. I got all their attention while I was talking and all their eyes were focus on me and it made me emotional. I closed my speech by thanking and praising God for giving me my perfect match. Then it was time to dig in the foods waiting on the buffet table. We had a great time.
