Thanks in 30 Challenge - Day 21

Today I am thankful for lots of things. That sweet Cayden had a great day at school and came home telling me all about the Scarlet Ibis. Bless that sweet child that loves animals so fiercely. It is raining tonight and he wanted me to lay in bed with him because he didn't like the thunder. We laid in his dark room and had the type of conversation that made me ache inside because I wanted to bottle it up and remember it forever. The way he looked at me. The sound of his voice. The smell of his watermelon shampoo. The way his soft skin felt as I stroked his face. We talked about all the people that don't have warm homes to be in and how thankful we are that we do. He laid there concerned for them getting wet and emphatically said that he would build them homes. Oh how I pray that his empathy for people continues to grow. I'm thankful for the shopping trip to Central Market with only my youngest. We don't get to spend a ton of time together just the two of us and I eat it up. She's such a joy and I have so much fun with her. I'm also thankful today that we took Christmas pics super early this year and that, thanks to Shutterfly, I have not only ordered my Christmas cards but have had them in hand for over a month. They offer such great deals and cute designs that I use them every year. This year I couldn't decide on just one design so I ordered a couple different ones but here is one of the designs that we'll be mailing out this year.
