Another Blessed Christmas–2016!

I just want to praise God by telling that Ben was home for eight days at Christmas (December 23rd to 31st–2016), and did GREAT!  There were some changes that he negotiated with grace and calm (answered prayer).  He was in a different bed, and in a different room than usual, and didn’t seem to mind at all.  He slept well, really enjoyed the “eats” (especially the grilled cheese sandwiches and nestle’s quik). He doesn’t get to eat like that at his living unit because of cholesterol problems.  We’ve been told to let him have what he enjoys while at home though, because just a week of it won’t hurt him.  We went to a movie and shopping, he worked a 300-piece puzzle all by himself (he enjoys that accomplishment), got to see his sister, brother and niece, went out to eat, opened presents, and just generally had a good time.  What a blessing!  Lord, we can’t thank you enough!  My husband, even at age 78, drove 4 hours to get Ben, and 4 hours back home…all in one day.  They had a good time listening to music on the way.  Ben enjoys that too.  At the end of the visit, my husband made that same trip again.  What a FINE man and father he is!  I am blessed!  Here’s Ben with his finished puzzle!ben-puzzle-xmas-2016
