Ben turned 13 yesterday and I do believe that he had a really great birthday party! His one request that he just have some friends over to play video games with him, since that’s his thing, and that’s exactly what he did. Not to mention, the new PS4 helped with that quite a bit. As did the games…
This was also a big deal for Ben because, while I’ve always expected him to make it to 13, Neuroblastoma sure has a way of changing life’s plans. With the news we got this past week, it was refreshing to just relax with friends and enjoy the day.
I couldn’t be prouder of the young man Ben has turned out to be and, if it’s God’s will, I’m very much looking forward to the man he going to become. (Watch out, folks, your daughters will not want to miss out on this guy!)
He’s a great kid and, to borrow from God:
“This is my son, whom I love; with whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17 NIV)
I love you, Ben, and am proud to be your Dad!
