It's been a few days since I celebrated my birthday. I've been too busy so its only now that I found time to post it here in my blog. I thank God for another year that He added in my life. I consider it a blessing that until now I am alive, cancer free and stroke survivor. If you only knew how it feels to be stricken with cancer and was dying many years ago, then had a stroke 7 years later that made me so weak and had to stay in the rehab hospital for more than a month then you will understand how grateful and and thankful I am that the Lord had answered my prayers, healed me and gave me a new lease of life.
To celebrate my birthday, my helper Jojo and I cooked foods for my invited guests, friends and neighbors. She started cooking in the morning and finished it around 6PM. She cooked first the beef menudo, beef mechado, chicken and pork adobo, pinakbet, ginataang gabi and the shanghai lumpia which I prepared the day before I know she was so exhausted and tired. I helped her prepared the ingredients and she did the cooking. Jhun cooked the spaghetti sauce and my brothers cooked the spaghetti pasta, rice and chicken barbeque. I made the aga-agar salad the night before and hubby bought my birthday cake.
Some of my friends (teachers) from the LNHS whom I used to work with came too. Dinner started around 6:30 PM at our carport. Jojo was so delighted when they told her that the foods she cooked were delicious. Just hearing the compliments made her tiredness vanished. Everybody got full and satisfied. We have quite a few leftovers and we ate it for a couple of days. I thank the Lord for all the blessings he bestowed. To God be the glory!
And here's a gift for me from Rosalie. It's a pink beaded purse. So cute.
