My Son, His Birthday and His Favorite Food

It’s my son’s 15th birthday yesterday! He’s taller than me now. I can't believe how much he has grown in 5 years time. It’s so hard for me really notice his growth since we are constantly together but when I look at pictures from 5 years ago (when we first set foot in Canada), the difference is undeniable.

His celebration with relatives and friends is scheduled next week. So yesterday was spent with just us. Went to mass to thank God for all the blessings and had a special dinner just for him. A relative sent a cake for him so dessert is no problem. Not as good as Goldilocks but close enough!

I asked him what he wanted for dinner and he said I want my favorite food. So, for the birthday boy who prefers meat, I prepared grilled beef steaks (prime cut sirloin) to medium rare and Barbeque Chicken. Of course, the traditional Noodle dish is always included.

He was totally happy and full.

A birthday is always a blessing. And it comes in all shapes and forms. Wishing your son the best of everything, not just on his special day but through out the year.

Where were you when you were fifteen?
