Thankful Thursday - Post Office & Treatment Options

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 my mom. My parents were in town this weekend and my mom is in town all week. My mom watched Mckenna while I got stuff done and it was awesome. They had so much fun together. Mckenna loves her Nana!

I'm thankful for nice post office workers. I had to mail 218 shirts this week which have to be individually weighed and postage put on which usually takes forever and I hold everyone up. Well my delightful post office worker was a gem and made it as enjoyable as possible. Thanks Joann!

I'm thankful for breastmilk poop. Yup. I said it! Now that Mckenna is eating all solids all the time it makes for stinky diapers. It makes me miss and be thankful for the first 6 months of straight breastmilk poops...not great but not terrible either!!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for treatment options. I'm testing out a new product that can supplement for a Vest therapy that is easier to travel with. I'm of course thankful for the opportunity to test it out, but also thankful for it's "compactability". It's made my last couple of trips easier and may end up being a good option for me. (I plan to write a full review on the product at a later date)

I'm thankful for trail mix. When I'm on the road, I eat a lot of trail mix. Probably too much actually. It's just so easy, tasty and (mostly) nutritious that I can't seem to stay away. In fact, I had over 1000 calories of trail mix yesterday - whoops :)

I'm thankful for those who give of themselves and expect nothing in return. Nothing I can really add to that but a big THANK YOU and you don't go unnoticed. 

So, what are you thankful for today?

My Prayer for the President


I pray that the man you allowed to be in the office of the President seeks You first about all else. Before his party. Before his friends. Before his influencers. Before the people he serves. Before his own beliefs.

I pray that he recognizes his world-wide influence and it can be used to show the Goodness of You. That the love You show to him can be seen by many here and across the globe, by the love he shows for the lost, the weak and the defenseless.

I pray that you convict Him of Your convictions. That he leads based on Your Word and not the word of others. Be his moral compass God and lead him onto a straight path of righteousness.

I pray that my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ can recognize that Your heart is deeply saddened by the ideals and beliefs held by some in this nation and around the globe.

I pray that we start to align more closely with Your ideals and Your beliefs. May we serve the poor. Protect orphans and widows. Spread the Good News. Pray. Fast. And live out the Word in action and not just voice.

Give us the strength to avoid unrighteous anger, sexual sin, divorce, lying, retaliation, hatred, worry, and judgement.

Lord, may your name be glorified by the way we live each day as individuals and as a nation.

Be with our President these next four years and use him as a tool for the furtherance of your Kingdom here on Earth.

Everyone can vote...even this guy!!

For a second there, I thought this article was about me :)

Man Who Eats Breakfast At Dunkin' Donuts Every Morning And Enjoys The 'Saw' Films 

Allowed To Vote

YOUNGSTOWN, OH—According to records obtained from the Mahoning County registrar’s office, local man David Kearney, who eats breakfast at Dunkin’ Donuts every day and is a passionate fan of the Saw film franchise, is actually allowed to vote in today’s general election.
Reports confirmed that Kearney, 34, enjoys sitting down in a Dunkin’ Donuts location and eating a sausage, egg, and cheese croissant each morning before work, has seen every Saw movie multiple times, and is freely able to play an active role in the democratic process like every other registered voter in the United States.
“I just can’t get going in the morning without a Dunkaccino,” said Kearney, who possesses the right to visit a polling center and help decide, quite literally, the political direction of the entire nation over the next four years. “They’re so good. Goes great with a Boston Kreme.”
“And you gotta love the Munchkins, man—I usually get a half dozen of those,” added the man who will help choose the next president of the United States, which, reportedly, is the most important and powerful position in the world. “I’ve got a Dunkin’ Donuts Perks card, too, so it’s pretty cheap.”

Sources also said Kearney, whose ballot counts as much as any other Ohio resident in determining which candidate receives the state’s crucial 18 electoral votes, owns all theSaw films on DVD and frequently watches them at home on weekends. Due to his residence in the highly contested swing state, the man who willingly and excitedly went to seeSaw 3D on opening night will, reports indicated, actually have a larger impact on determining the outcome of the election than voters in virtually every other state in the country.
“I think the original Saw is my favorite one—that one’s awesome—but Saw IV is a close second,” said Kearney, whose decision will ultimately shape the country’s future when it comes to such areas as the economy, unemployment, foreign policy, women’s rights, financial regulation, tax reform, health care, immigration, and literally every other major issue. “Gotta love the crazy tests that Jigsaw sets up for his victims. So cool. I really love the gory parts. They make it look super real.”
Numerous sources reiterated, once again, that our Constitution has entrusted a person who wears sweatpants in public and posts user reviews of porn videos online with one of the most important and fateful decisions a human being can make.
Furthermore, sources added, millions of people almost exactly like this person are also given an equal say in our democracy.
At press time, Kearney was reportedly finishing a Vanilla Bean Coolatta before walking into a voting booth to cast his ballot.

Mckenna's Birthday Pics!!

Although Mckenna's birthday was a couple of weeks ago, we waited to have the party until Eric and Nancy were in town to celebrate. The party was flawlessly put together and executed by my wife-extraordinaire. She is seriously amazing and somehow is just good at everything. We took a bunch of pics so I thought I'd throw a couple on RSBR so you guys can see how it went down. Enjoy!
