Thank You

The day is almost done, a lovely Sunday with a pleasant temperature of 74 degrees with a light breeze.
The house is quiet and I am just catching up on some blogs and have been thinking about the past week. Jim and I put together a baby bed to have here at our home for the baby. We thought it would be easy, but it wasn't! Oh well, it is all put together and we are happy with it. We both looked at each other when it was done and commented that we never thought a baby bed would be set up ready for our grandchild.

I am so thankful tonight. I have been thanking God for this grandbaby, a healthy grandbaby! What a blessing. I am thankful that Angie was able to make it through a hard labor and that she is recovering.
I am thankful for Chris ~ he loves babies. He is great father and we just love having him in our family.

I'm thankful for the relationship that my two daughters have and I do believe that it is stronger now than ever! They are so close and it makes me happy just to watch them together. Gina is so attached to Otto after helping with his delivery. I think it has sparked her mothering instinct! Her hubby Eric is coming down from Seattle tomorrow to meet Prince Otto!

I want to thank all of you who prayed and sent good wishes for Angie and this baby for many months and especially on delivery day. It meant so much to me and I'm just grateful for so many sweet friends. I haven't been blogging as much as I like and I thank those who have been so faithful,sending me messages, even when I haven't been able to visit your blogs.

It will be a busy week, helping the new family. Busy and exciting.

If ever there was a time for families to be close and love each other, it is now. I hope to be a grandma myself, someday, too. But that is still off in the future for me, We're just waiting for an engagement.
