Blessings From Above!
What a blessing it is for me to be with Britten tonight and report that he has had 3 good days in a row! Steven and Karla are spending some quality time with Canon and Jaxon, so I am the fortunate one to be with Britt. It was reported to me that Aunt Leslie got to see Britt and his Physical Therapist playing some "basketball" earlier in the day. It sounds like The PT had Britten playing defense and dribbling the ball, getting him ready to play some ball with his brothers! Britten then got a call from his very special friend in Brazil who is leaving on his own mission in 3 days! Britten was so excited to be able to understand every word of Portuguese. The day kept getting better when Britt had a surprise visit from Elder Frank, a good friend just returning home from his mission today. He had visits from a few other good friends as well, which really brightened his day and brought out his fun sense of humor. What a blessing it was for me to see him interact with a few of these wonderful friends that I have heard so much about! The wonderful end to the day was when Britten's family stopped in for family prayer, and Britten was able to say the prayer for the first time, and he did it perfectly! Words can't express the beautiful spirit as Britten thanked His Heavenly Father humbly for so many blessings, especially our Savior Jesus Christ. Today has truly been a blessing from above!
