People gathered for me


Teresa, our neighbor invited us for dinner. It’s for my birthday. My parents in law, Mary and I were invited.

My body didn’t feel good. I sneezed all day long. Actually sneezed every two minutes. Since the weather got cold, I felt like getting a cold.

But as I thought of the people who would gather for my birthday, I brought up my determination to overcome my sickness. Really appreciated the meeting.

I don’t remember when I had my last birthday party. I didn’t pay attention to my birthday party since I’ve grown up. It just passed by.

Today, I made Kimchi-jun for the participants. Wanted to show my appreciation.

Throughout the dinner, I held my gratitude in my heart and tried to fill the table with my appreciation.

This gathering is special because they naturally planned the gathering for me. I will be a better friend for them. Will do my duty as a good friend.
