Happy 9th Birthday Ben!

Today is Ben's 9th Birthday!  He's on a "guy's trip"  with Luke, Matt and Grumpa visiting family in Denver and celebrating his special day at the Broncos Game!  We are grateful for our friends, Tom and Nancy Kimball,  who worked to hook  Ben up with a special message from the team at half time, for Uncle Johnny and Loren for hosting and for Auntie Jane and Tim for driving up to spend time with our boys! We are mostly grateful for the grace of God in Ben's life- for that fact that his health is exceeding the expectations of his doctors, for the energy and motivation he has to live HIS life to the fullest.  Every single day he overcomes the limitations that are weighing down on him and he LIVES the life he has been given better and more passionatley than most of us ever will.  His fierce tenacity and adventurous spirit are inspirational and can motivate us to be people who make the choice to overcome obstacles and challenges in our own lives.  

Happy Birthday Benjamin James Anderson!  We love you so much and are so grateful and thankful for your amazing presence in our lives.

    Happy one day late Birthday! It sounded like a great one. I love your grandmother Andi. And I pray for you and your healing and for miracles. I’m believing for miracles for our grandson Quinn, and another grandmother’s grandson Finn. So it’s really easy to remember to pray for you when I pray for Quinn, Ben, and Finn! Wow are you ever athletic! I stand in awe of you and your ability to ski. May you have a miraculous year filled with lots of good times and divine turnarounds of healing. Love and blessings, Mama Glory

    Happy Birthday to Ben. Katie, I keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I get to see sweet Ben taking walks most afternoons as I drive my son home from Reno High. He is remarkable. With Love, Carry Thomas and Family
