Friday night grateful moment

Oh, what a day! 42. I got a little caught up in reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy quotes last night, thinking that I would find something really pithy and clever to share about 42 being the answer to life, the universe and everything... and that's pretty much what I found: 42 IS the answer to life, the universe and everything... I'm looking forward to living that out in the coming year!

And there's certainly more to be thankful for than just today, but I figure it's a good place to start:

I'm grateful that Seth's home, and the hugs abound.

I'm grateful that my parents are here for a weekend visit, safe and sound.

I'm grateful for such a thoughtful and generous husband, who schlepped all over town to help Seth with birthday gifts. What an amazing guy. I could fill this list up with just him... and maybe I will one of these days, but he might blush a little (I like it when I get that reaction!).

I'm grateful for such good friends who filled up my email inbox and Facebook wall with birthday love. The phone calls were wonderful too, special girls (and the singing from Bainbridge Island? Wow, I am never deleting that message! It rocked!). Thanks for that. Oh, and the cupcakes this morning, and a pie on my doorstep when I got home and a great steak frites lunch yesterday (the perfect kickoff to my day, truly). I'm blessed.

I'm grateful for skype to say hello to faraway aunties. And for my grandma's phone call too. There's no other voice quite like Grandma's, and hearing it at the other end of the line never fails to make my day.

I'm grateful for the cupcakes, which kind of let me off the cake hook for the day... I'm pretty sure I'll make one or two or three cakes tomorrow (there was a pretty cool cake form in my birthday treasures), but for today, we dished up pie and cupcakes and that totally sufficed.

I'm grateful that my wish for sun on my birthday was fulfilled. What a beautiful afternoon and evening we had!

I'm grateful for the restful weekend ahead... I hope yours is restful too!
