Today is a day of Thanks. And we have much to be thankful for. We have an amazing son who brings joy to our life every day. Joe and I both have good jobs that are interesting and allow us to pay the bills and save some.

I want to hold on to these days because I feel them slipping away way to quickly. I still can’t believe that we are so lucky to Nathanael as our little boy.

Nathanael and I spent a lazy day yesterday (Joe was at work) and it was so great. We didn’t do much – he probably watched a bit too much TV and I could have accomplished a few more things but it was an easy day where we just enjoyed one anothers company.

As I sit here and type this I am watching Nathanael happily going outside the house to the porch and then back in  again. It’s chilly today and a porch is a great thing! He’s all dressed up and walks in to tell me hello and then says bye as he goes back out. Rinse, repeat, and again.

Today we are going to my parent’s house and they just completely adore Nathanael.

A string of somewhat disjointed thoughts that add up to one single thought: Life is good.
