walking together...


"Praise the Lord! Give thanks to the Lord for He is good! His faithful love endures forever. Who can list the glorious miracles of the Lord? Who can ever praise Him enough? Ps 106:1,2

Well, we are not holding hands and walking side by side but Ben and I are walking together! Rather it is me walking behind Ben with at times my hands under his arms! I have longed for these days and they are upon us! We have done this a few times before but this is the first time that it is getting documented by photo! Since this walk I have been walking Ben to PT and then when he is done going back to get him and walking him to lunch. His therapists keep an "eye" on us but sometimes he just says, "I am going to go to the gym and I will meet you there!" Eeeekkkk! My nerves have settled but when we first started doing this I wanted to shout, "No, come back!" the only hiccup to our walking is if someone says something to crack Ben up...last time it was, "breaking wind!" You all know that when you work out more or get moving more your system speeds up. Well, Ben just happens to do this when I am walking behind him! Stinker! His PT asked him about it the other day and Ben was stumbling all over the place, lost control over his walking and had a huge smirk on his face! Our hiccup, don't make Ben crack up while walking because he gets all wobbly! I of course had to laugh right along with both of them! If you notice his head and neck, well it still needs work! Please continue to pray that it will straighten, loosen and be positioned where it is to be!

Up and at em kid...here we go!!









One day, and I pray it is soon we will be doing this...

YAY!! Firefighters!! I was laughing so hard about "breaking wind". My kids asked what was so funny. I was laughing so much, they started laughing. I did finally get it out, then they laughed for the story. Oh, by the way, that last picture is what's in store. :) Hugs, Marion

Praise the Lord! Our God is good. I have tears running down my face after reading your story. Not only is Ben a fighter, but you are as well. Not once have you given up. I wish I had that type of faith. I can't believe how much I take for granted.. Y'all hang in there.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him & he will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6

Katie, I'm sorry I haven't commented in a long time. I am still checking your blog and I am still praying for you both. Today I saw a video that immediately made me think of you and Ben. If you've seen it already, I'm sorry, but just in case you haven't, here is the link:
