Today I had a great time attending a picnic for a friend’s birthday. It is nice when you are traveling to be somewhere at just the right time. Since I often come to Toronto, I have some good friends here.
Today we celebrated the 50th birthday of my friend Rose. I have known Rose for eight years since I first visited the church in Toronto where my friend John preaches.
I also just happened to be in town five years ago and was invited to A Birthday Feast then.
My friend John and I wore the same shirt for the picnic. We had people ask if we were brothers. I had brought this shirt with me to Canada during my last visit and then had seen a picture of John wearing his. I then had to check and see if I had left my shirt there. So, we decided to both wear our green shirts.
There was a lot of food at the party. Most of the food was Filipino food, but there were a few other cuisines represented as well.
Finally it was time for the cake. The cake had very pretty decorations and tasted good as well. I really like this picture of Rose. She is so happy from being surrounded by her family and friends who helped her celebrate her birthday.
I will see many of the people who were at the picnic again tomorrow morning at church services. I have really enjoyed getting to know them over the past eight years during my visits to Toronto.
Happy Birthday Rose!
