Makin' Friends Monday

Today for Makin' Friends Monday we are reflecting on what makes happy and for what we are thankful. This is a great exercise for me as I have so many reasons to be grateful. Today, especially, I am grateful to be in San Francisco enjoying the company of my youngest daughter (and her I cute husband) as we await the impending birth of her first baby, Hudson.
Penny is getting all the love she can before Hudson comes.
The tiny clothes have been washed, folded and put into their proper bins.
The high chair and swing have been assembled and are set up in the kitchen and the two soon-to-be-parents are riding around the city with the little car seat buckled into the back seat of their car.

Now we are going to walk, and walk, and walk until He decides it is the exact time he chooses to meet us and come into this world!

I am so proud and thankful for my sweet daughters and their loving husbands that take good care of them. And no one has cuter or nicer grandchildren than I!
I am blessed to have a warm, beautiful home and live near some of my family. Next to family is good health, a strong body and good genes. I have great friends, a dependable car and time to enjoy life. I am thankful to live in this free country and live in this time in history. If I was really appreciative, I would never complain about a thing. That, I have to work on and after this exercise, it makes me really think about doing so.

There are many little things to be thankful for that I will not mention here but you can read more Makin' Friends Monday by visiting Kasey here. I will enjoy reading about your favorite things today too.
Thanks for coming by!
