simple words of i love you...


I know I owe y'all a whole bunch of postings and photos and they will come. We have been trying to get back into the swing of things and adjust back to our time zone. We have been going non-stop since we have been back! So, I will get updates up of our trip soon!

Ben took off for therapy to the Y today for PT. After he left I missed him so much. I have never really missed him and yearned for him so much while he has just been in PT. It was only two hours but I truly missed him for more then just being away at therapy! The emotions just came and so did the tears. This doesn't happen all to often because generally I am not an emotional person. I tried to keep cleaning as the tears flowed but that was not really working. Of course when Ben got back with his PT I was red-eyed and then lost it again if he asked if I was ok. With Ben there they encouraged me and told me what they had worked on.

After Ben's PT left I got Ben a snack and then set up to practice his writing. He still needs work in this area so I want to get him moving in it! He has always hated spelling but today he did really well. His penmanship is good but when his hands gets to shaking it gets a bit our of control, but he still keeps going.

I asked him to write out a few things and he did them! I looked at his work and noticed that he had left out some letters to the alphabet. I asked him to please write it our again and make note of the ones he had forgotten. I gave him a few minutes to work on it while I did some more cleaning and came back to see how he had done. Instead of writing out the alphabet again he decided to take matters into his own hands and write out I LOVE KATIE! I saw this and lost it again! How amazing is my man to know what I was going through and have the thoughtfulness to write out his love for me. Also, the Lord knew I needed this after the morning I had!
Ben, you are amazing and I LOVE YOU!

That is amazing! The Lord is working in miraculous ways...more than we know. He knows what you need right when you need it... I keep praying for Ben and you...and for his full recovery. It is amazing what the Lord does for those who fear and love him...

Katie, You don't owe us anything. It's a wonder you get to write as much as you do. As for the emotions, there are times I just need to cry, no real reason. Then anything sets me off. It's nice to have the gift of by-yourself time to do it in. It's an extra special gift to have your sweet husband to understand. I love you, Marion

I'm glad you're home and look forward to hearing about your trip.
I love the pictures of him in his uniform and of him floating in the pool - what a stud!

Always praying...

So sweet!

I used to crave a moment in my home alone so I could collapse alone. That never happened as I would be too restless and pace waiting . . .

Blessings

I just lost it reading the post. What a strength you have and what a caring husband. God is good, and I love how you are clinging to that!
