"Yet the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil." 2 Thessalonians 3:3
"God is faithful (reliable, trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be depended on); by Him you were called into companionship and participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." 1 Corinthians 1:9
First things first...
You know that voting that was taking place for the Milbloggie award??? Well, I just got word tonight by Goodnight Moon that we WON!! We also won the USAA award and will be spotlighted on their website! Thank you all for voting! I am humbled and so blessed by you all and this award!
A few visitors stopped by yesterday from the family! One of my brothers and a sister! The kids were excited to see their Uncle Ben and bring him some McDonalds! They loved every minute of it! After lunch the younger ones took off or got on Ben's bed to watch some cartoons! The older boys set Ben up with a book to find different things in it. Ben loved it! It was easy for Ben and the boys and then it got difficult but it was so good for all of them and they had tons of fun and lots of laughs!
Ben has been doing well in his therapies! He is getting almost 2 hours of ST a day, 1hour of each PT and OT and sometimes a little bit more. He of course continues to work hard and hold fast to the goal of "beating this brain injury!"
Tomorrow brings alot of excitement and alot of work! We get to move all of our belongings (that have been in storage for over a year) into our rental house!! It is the second part to get Ben home! First was just getting him here to WA! I have some buff men coming to help and some ladies to help me clean and unpack! The accident happened just before our 2 year wedding anniversary so our stuff is still fairly new...which is good! I am realizing stuff that we don't have and the lists are being formed! Ben will have therapy tomorrow so he will be staying busy but I wish he could be there to see all of the happenings! Soon though he will be home and able to enjoy a house all comfy for him!
I may not be able to blog for a few days! As my friend out it I should just say I am taking a "spring break" from posting! Who knows though, I may pop on here and give some quick updates! Bare with me!!
Sayings of Ben...
My lil brother told Ben before he was leaving not to let me give him any crap. Ben looked over at me and said, "did you hear that? listen to him!"
While watching some highlights of the royal wedding tonight I told Ben that Kate's dress was really pretty. He turned his head and looked at me and said, "I loved yours. You looked beautiful in it!" Melt my heart oh man of mine!
Just in case you are interested our royal titles would be...
Baron Benjamin Astrup Ryeskitt of Olympiaford
Baroness Katie Calthorpe Ryeham of Olympiaham
