Back to "Forrest Gump"...John blogs again

John is getting into this blogging!
While watching the movie, "Forrest Gump" on TV the other night, I realized some similarities between Forrest and our family. We had (as they say) a mentally challenged/special needs child. Johny was very much "Forrest Gump"--Tom Hanks could have played Johny, as he acted so much like Johny in the way he walked and talked.
There were similarities in that: 1. Johny was very honest and never lied. 2. He had a strong sense of right and wrong. 3. Johny was very friendly toward all people. 4. He did what he was told to do without questioning. 5. Forrest Gump loved his mother very much and so did Johny. 6. Forrest's mother died of cancer. Johny's mother has had cancer for nearly six years and still taking treatments.
Johny was a joy to Beverly and me and his family. He would come up with sayings and comments that were so funny! We have the joy of seeing him in heaven some day--a blessing we have as Christians.
Proverbs 31:10-11 "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value."
