Thankful

It has been far too long since I wrote last.  I have missed journaling and posting photos terribly, mainly because there are so many things I want to record for Connor that I know I'll forget if I don't keep at this on a regular basis.

However, I have been heartily enjoying life these last couple of weeks.  Things have been crazy (I feel like I say that every week, though.) in the lives of the Davidsons, but in many good ways.  Since I last blogged we/I have:

- gone to a beautiful wedding




- had another Christmas Movie Monday (I'll Be Home for Christmas) with a homestyle dinner theme






- helped host a baby shower for a sweet friend/colleague








- painted pottery with my mom and sis to celebrate Mom's 50th birthday









- taken 49 students to KYA (a tiring but inspiring experience)



- and celebrated Thanksgiving with people I love.














There are so many things to be thankful for: a wonderful husband, precious son, family, friends, church, small group, our home, and too many other blessings to count.

I am thankful that Connor is growing healthy and strong, that he is talking more every day, even if his newest phrase is, "Big turds."  Seriously.  I am thankful he is now learning to say please, thank you, and sorry without being prompted.  I am thankful God blessed us with such a sweet, empathetic, outgoing boy.

All I can say is that today and always, I am simply thankful to God for blessing me more than I deserve.
