They rendered an impromptu entertainment of songs rendition and dance number that everyone enjoyed in such birthday bash.
Everyone shared his or her birthday wish to Ma'm Portia like "enjoy life to the fullest", "stay as sweet as ever", "God bless", "More birthdays to come", among others.
She replied by wishing everyone a success in his or her field of expertise. She also expressed the happiness that she enjoyed in her stay in the division of La Carlota and everything that the La Carlota DepEd family could offer especially in working together in doing her job as the assistant schools division superintendent, officer-in-charge.
God's Well Loved
This blogger, school head of Cubay Elementary School in La Carlota City, who later learned of Portia's natal day composed an instant birthday wish output as follows:
This birthday wish incorporates words like "provides", "overcomes", "remembers", "tries", "instills", "accepts" that all start with the initial letter of a name of woman, P. O. R. T. I. A., who is celebrating her birthday. May she be blessed of the best of everything in her special day today. Happy birthday!
Ma'm Portia's Words of Response to her greeters:
Her response was focused on "Mental Fitness" as inspired by Andrew Matthews' book, "HAPPINESS NOW"
She cited some lines like:
"Day by day you gain confidence. Gradually you build a positive attitude."
"Struggle builds strength."
"When life gets tough, remind yourself: 'This is making me mentally fit. I must be getting happier."
In assuming the position of officer-in-charge in the office of assistant schools division superintendent, Ma'm Mallorca happily expressed that she really enjoyed today's party and even in the last few days while she kept herself busy in visiting the schools in the division of La Carlota.
"I wish success to all of us, to La Carlota DepEd Family," she said.
In closing, everyone sings Carpenter's "You" dedicated to Ma'm Mallorca, especially a line that says: "You are one who makes me happy."
Happy birthday, Ma'm Portia!
