happy birthday, ben

This is my absolutely favorite picture of my eldest son.

Doing chores in Idaho on a sunny fall day.

He wore that football helmet a lot.

A lot.

He was the preemie who no one thought would live past two weeks, if he lived that long.

And now he’s 45.

45!!!!!!

How lucky we are to have had this boy–this man–in our lives!!!

Happy Birthday, Ben.

We all love you more than you could ever imagine.
