Happy Birthday Ben...





Today is a big day for Ben! It is his 31st birthday! The balloons, decorations and cake are all ready to be set up when he is in his morning therapy session! His wish was to have no therapies but that didn't go over well with the therapists!
This is his second birthday in the hospital but I am grateful to be celebrating another one with him being here with us! He at least can tell everyone this year when his birthday is compared to not even knowing it was his day last year!!
What an amazing man and Ben is! He has alot of goals and desires for this year and I know the Lord will honor those!
Ben, I am proud of you! You are a great man of God, one who is loyal to me, you take care of me, you are faithful to many, your an interrous man and your strength to fight this fight inspires me to keep fighting myself! You are my hero, my lover and my best friend! I love you with all my heart!

Your birthday marks another year together;
Such happy times, I couldn’t ask for more,
Spending precious minutes, hours and days
With you, my love, whom I cherish and adore.

We’ve shared so much, we two, in love and friendship;
Each year our bond just seems to grow and grow.
I always want to be right next to you;
To be with you means more than you can know.

You’re always there for me with a loving smile;
I’m never happier than when I know you’re near.
I thought my love for you could not grow stronger;
And yet I love you even more this year. Fuchs
