Thankful Thursday - What Matters Most In The World
Our son, Benjamin's, 11th birthday is this Saturday so of course such a momentous occasion makes me stop and take pause, relfecting on how truly lucky we are to have this incredible boy in our lives. Our other son, Samuel, is 12 (soon to be a teenager!) and sometimes I can't remember what life was like before them. And I don't want to. It's all for them. We work hard, we play hard, we try to teach them values and ethics, our world revolves around them. And I certainly wouldn't have it any other way.
So, happy birthday to one of the two greatest kids in the universe... Happy Birthday Ben! We love you!
Oh, and because I never get tired of sharing our gorgeous area, I've included a photo of our boys at Multnomah Falls, just 20 miles east of Portland, Oregon. Ben's the one on the right.
