James' story is one of excelling against all odds. The one thing I will share is that he had severe lead poisoning. At one point the doctor claimed he may never be able to run or climb ladders; that certainly has not been the case!
It has been several years since James had a party with friends at his house, so it was a great time for him. James is always grateful and thankful for what he receives, which is a character trait I love.
It was cool that Costco had a soccer cake, which matched the plates, cups and napkins that I bought, but forgot to get out. That's one of the good things about boys; they can have a great time with a patch of grass, a ball and each other!
Happy double digit birthday, James. We are blessed with you in our lives.
I think it's fitting that James came with the name James -
James 1:27 - Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
