A good friend to all, a problem solver, and a team player who works hard to achieve his goals and to help others

A wonderful end to the school year for grandson Ben…

Believing for Ben

Ben wrapped up the school year with an award for academic achievement and the wonderful accolade noted in the title of this blog post. He also was chosen to represent all students in Grade 3 in making a special presentation to the school principal who is retiring now that the school year is over. Needless to say we are very proud of him.

A few other photos from his special day, including one with his teacher…

Waiting to receive his honors…

Recognition and a hug from the school principal (he’s as tall as she is!)…

And celebrating the end of the school year with his mom and with his friend B. who he has known since preschool…

As always, many thanks to all who have kept Ben in your thoughts and prayers since his surgeries five years ago.

    I can’t think of a higher accolade. Congratulations, Ben — good work! I’m going to reblog this to all my readers at my sister site “Timeless Wisdoms” so that more people will see this and try to be like you.


    1. Thank you so much! I (Ben’s grandmother) am so proud of him. I think the struggles he went through as a younger child have helped mold his character. He is such a kind person!


  4. He is so grown up! I can see him as part of a famous boy band. 🙂


    1. Well, he does love to sing! Yes, he has grown a lot, in many ways!

    1. Thank you. I can’t take credit for these, as I wasn’t able to be there. My daughter and her husband took the photos.
