Thankful Thursday: Stories & Routines

It's thankful Thursday time! We all have so much to be thankful for and we love to take this opportunity just to write down each and everything that comes to mind. Please take this time to share with us what you're thankful for as well. If you have a blog expressing your thankfulness, please share the link! Without further ado, here's what we're thankful for:

Mandi's List:

I’m thankful for hot chocolate. This time of year is the time of year I crave warm, cozy drinks. Hot chocolate always fits the bill. I could drink hot chocolate all day, throw some marshmallows in there and boom, perfection.

I’m thankful for Ronnie being home. After 2.5 weeks in the hole, there is nothing more awesome than having my hubby back. Mckenna and I both missed him!

I’m thankful for sweet stories. Mckenna has become quite the storyteller, and it is adorable. The way she tells stories, the stories she tells, her sweet little giggles in the middle and at the end…they make my heart so full!!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for a non-traditional Thanksgiving Day celebration. I was still inpatient on Thanksgiving and I'm so thankful to my wife and daughter for making the drive down to the Hole to bring me a fantastic meal prepared by Nana. Mandi also brought a table cloth and candles to try and hide the fact we were eating on a metal picnic table outside of the hospital. It was a very special time for my family and the food was deelish!

I'm thankful for routines. I got out of the hospital the day after Thanksgiving day and spent the weekend loving up on my family and spending time with them. Come Monday, it's been all about getting back into the Sharpe routine. Whether that's work, gym, park, meals, bedtime or quality time with Mandi, I'm just so thankful to be back with my family and back into our routines.

I'm thankful that we're almost at the finish line. We started the process to become a licensed foster family many months ago, and I'm so thankful that that process will be coming to an end very soon. I believe that we learned a lot through the classes and grew as individuals and as a family.

What are you thankful for today?
