Well even though Aed was still a bit fussy, through some perseverance I got him to eat better today and we found he thoroughly enjoys gumming a cold teething toy. I am thankful that we are finding ways to provide him relief and affirmation in our suspicions that he is having teething pain.

And you know what? He is darn cute. I am so thankful for that. Even when he is only making serious faces or is crying when it's time to eat, it's all pretty cute :) And it turns out he is really studly in yellow.

I am unbelievably thankful that it has been two whole days since my computer last went on the fritz and I have actually been able to get some work done!

I am also really thankful for all the encouraging women in my life. They are near and far, and they come and go in the frequency with which I interact with them, but they are many and they are wonderful. And the Lord uses them with his perfect timing.

I am thankful for Christmas music!

And, I am thankful for a stunning view of the sunset this evening, reminding me that this world, this life.. It is all bigger than me. I am a blip, a vapor that is here and then it is gone, but the Lord is forever. He is forever and he is faithful. That is something to be thankful for.


  1. I think we need a post about Aed's first Christmas..... (hint, hint!)

  2. I'm enjoying your thankfulness posts - its always good to be reminded of letting gratitude become more central in my days.
