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.
