A Surprise Birthday Party

Due to family concerns this past month a lot of things planned for August were cancelled or postponed including my 50th birthday party.

This morning I was very surprised when my Christian Formation class at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church threw me a birthday party. I was so not expecting it and I was humbled and grateful. We had a decadent chocolate cake which was quite tasty. This is what it means to be the church when people are hurting and when things get tough you show them love and that sometimes comes in cakes and candles and coffee.

I thank everyone who was involved with this. I was very touched.
