Oh Life.....

So things with the Thompson's have been nothing but crazy lately! I have been working on my senior project that I have to finish in order to graduate. Since my gpa is high enough, I was able to choose to do a creative project. I decided to take on writing one of the books that I had started a few years ago. It has been a frustrating process nonetheless because of the advisor that I have; however, it is almost done! I just emailed off my final draft of the piece today and should, hopefully, hear something soon. If there are revisions that need to be made then I will go through and make those changes and turn the completed piece in by Friday the 18th. As long as it passes then I have four classes to take next semester and I will graduate in May! :o) Yea! Finally!

I have to say that I am thankful for God and his timing. Sometimes I struggle with it (Josh and I are trying desperately not to struggle with it right now), but today was quite the blessing. My best friend from elementary, middle and high school, Heather, came back into my life today. She is home for the holidays visiting her family and asked if we could get together for some coffee. We chatted for four hours today. To make a long story short, we both had a hand in pushing each other away about eleven years ago. Things were tough in my life and she didn't know how to handle it. Then because she was pushing me away, I pushed her away. Anyway, over the four hours we have both realized that our lives have been going much the same way and have included a lot of the same things. I have been in desperate need of a Christian female friend. Josh and I had just been talking about this and now here we are :o)

Liam has been growing and learning so much! He is still at the YMCA daycare and loves it there. He was moved up to the 5 yr old room, even though he is only 4. They had too many 4 yr olds and needed to move some up. They thought Liam was a good candidate and boy were they right! He was not being challenged enough in the 4's, so his behavior was suffering. He was acting out because he was bored. Now in the 5's he is learning something new every day and his behavior has drastically changed. Of course, he has his days, but what child doesn't?

I have been trying to work on being grateful and appreciative for everything that we have, even the little things. It is a work in progress and a daily reminder that sometimes we just need to wait.
