Thankful Friday

O.K. that doesn't have the same flow as "Thankful Thursday" but I just didn't have the time to post yesterday and I figure any day is a good day to be thankful. Right?

So here goes:
I am thankful for my husband. We are sharing a car right now and as much of a pain in the you-know-what that is, he makes a pretty good chauffeur.

I am thankful for Blogger friends. Especially this one. On Monday I received this card in the mail from Kayce and it made my day. Last summer Joe and I sat out on the veranda at a coffee shop with Kayce and her son J and chatted the afternoon away. This was our view the whole time at Capitola Beach. I fell in love with this little beach town and can't wait to go back this summer. Kayce's Mother-in-law drew this illustration. Can you believe how talented she is? I am going to frame this and hang it right by my bed. It makes me happy whenever I look at it.

(Please excuse the poor quality. Cell phone picture again. It really is much more vibrant and beautiful in person)

I am thankful for muscle relaxants. Last week I hurt my back and then on Wednesday I woke up with a stiff neck and couldn't move it at all. I know. I am the most injury prone person ever. I was supposed to drive my Dad to his dental appointment in San Bernardino but I was crying and carrying on so much in so much pain that Joe took pity on me and said he would drive us. Told you he made a good chauffeur. I took a muscle relaxant and then I was like “Pain? What pain?” They make me kind of loopy and quite nauseous so I only took them that one day. So thankful to have had them though! I am thankful for the beautifully sunny weather we have been having this last week.
Lastly, I am thankful for Fridays(Of course!)

What are you thankful for?

First off I'm thankful for your friendship Michelle! You are a blessing!

Second I'm thankful for the great weather we are going to have this weekend!!! The fog burned off around 1pm today and I'm praying that it stays FAR away.

Finally I'm thankful for my dogs. They just make me smile all the time.

I am thankful for your friendship and support.

I am thankful for my children, they somehow bring out the best in me.

I am thankful for my husband. He has lost so much due to being with me, but has never wavered about his commitment to us.

That is one beautiful illustration. You guys must have had an amazing time.

We are probably sharing a car next term so we may be in your boat.

I am thankful that I am going to Cali tomorrow. I need a break and my kid needs to see his family.

I'm thankful for My hubs too and my granddaughter who makes this wait a little easier to handle.
I'm also thankful for bloggy buddies, since some of my friends get so confused when I talk "IA lingo."
and coffee.....thank you to whoever the first person was who sucked on a coffee bean and realized it kept them alert. I'm very thankful for that guy! ;O)

Have a wonderful weekend Michelle!
