My Hero's Birthday....

Today is Kenneth's birthday. He is 27 years old. He as been a delight in my life from the moment I laid eyes on him. those big brown eyes have melted my heart over the years. His good looks and charming personality has kept him out of a "lot" of trouble! Like when he pulled the fire alarm during church. When he was a little boy Kristin and I would call him our golden boy. The sun would kiss his skin and turn it a beautiful copper color. Until he was three he had golden blond hair! You wouldn't know that now looking at all that dark brown hair. His niece and nephew think he is the best thing ever. Kenneth would chase Bubby around the house in that wheelchair and Bubby would laugh until he couldn't stand up. Kaitlyn always wants to help when we are getting Kenneth into his chair. She loves to pump the handle of the lift that takes Kenneth up into the air. They call him Uncle Kenny. He doesn't let too many people call him "Kenny". Those dark days that he was in intensive care I saw his sisters rally around him. I could see and feel their immense love for him. so many prayers offered up for him. Heavenly Father answered, allowing Kenneth to continue to be with us. I know of the great love Heavenly Father has for Kenneth and he has allowed angels to come and administer to him. Kenneth's attributes, he is good, kind, insightful, intelligent, generous and compassionate just to name a few... I'm honored to be his mother.

I have learned so much from him. I have learned the gift of patience(not so much in dealing with him, lol) but he has patience with all of us!!! I have learned not to feel sorry for myself. I have learned to do things that I didn't think I could. I have watched him figure out how to do so many things for himself. His desire to be self sufficient (as much as he can be) is something to behold. He's my Hero!!!
