I'm thankful to have so much to be thankful for!

Last weekend I had two "litle girl" showers. On Saturday my oldest friends hosted a luncheon for me. With about 10 of my best friends there we had an awesome time and I got such great presents from all of them. My Mom and sister were able to come into town and attend also. One of my friends has a three year old daughter that I don't see very often but for some reason she attached herself to me during the party. She would rub her hand up and down my arm and even laid her head on my shoulder for a while and of course helped me open the presents. Now I don't know if the fact that I was the one with all the presents or if it was some more meaningful reason that she clung to me but I surely enjoyed it and it just made me hopeful for the time when I can have that every day.
The next day my friends from work hosted a more traditional baby shower. It was held at my church with a great food table, baby decorations, and shower games. About 30 people attended and I had such a great time. My mom was able to stay and attend that also. It was nice to have her be a part of that and get so excited for her new granddaughter to be here. She is a wonderful mom but she is one of the best Grandma's I have ever seen so I expect my daughter and her to have lots of fun together.
I got the most wonderful gifts--I truly have everything I need for her and she will be one of the best dressed kids in town.
Today I spent most of the day writing thank-you notes--about 80 of them. I am truly thankful to have so much to be thankful for.

That is so great Mary! I bet you are ready with everything you need to get that sweet little girl home!
I hope it will be soon!

Thank you so much for the perfect Christmas card. I of course didn't get mine out this year...maybe next year?

Happy New Year and hope you had a very Merry Christmas! Lisa
