Thankful Thursday: Good Friends & Man Church

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 great friends. I have a fabulous friend. She's the same friend that is Mckenna's best buddy's mommy. The same friend I went to CA with with Mckenna and her two girls. I cherish her friendship more than she will ever know. It is such a blessing to have a friend that you enjoy and can truly be yourself with, and share the good, the bad, and the ugly together.

I'm thankful for good health. Ronnie has a cold and Mckenna had a stomach bug last weekend, and little bouts of illness make me really appreciative for all the good health we usually have.

I'm thankful for some dear friends' new little bundle of joy. We have some great friends who waited really patiently for a baby. They had their little boy last week and I could not be more thankful that he is here and perfect. There's nothing more joyous than dear friends holding one of their biggest dreams in their arms!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for the "perfect temperature". I'll be honest, I don't even know what that temperature is because I haven't bothered to look, but I do know that it has been said "perfect temperature" outside for the past couple of days. Not too hot, not too cold, but just right. Just right in the sun, just right in the shade and just right somewhere in between. 

I'm thankful for our church. I'm thankful that we belong to a church that gives us so many different ways to experience God and experience community. Since my softball league is on Tuesday nights and interfered with my bible study at church, I've been attending "Man Church" on Thursday mornings. It's been a blessing to meet some more men at our church and I enjoy the teachings, discussions and fellowship on Thursday mornings.

I'm thankful for swimming pools. Now that it's heated up just a bit, and the fact that Papi and Nana agree to run the pool heater, swimming has been occurring frequently for Mckenna. She has such a blast in the pool and I absolutely love to be with her as she learns new tricks and perfects old ones. Her new favorite seems to be swimming through daddy's legs underwater :)

What about you? What are you thankful for today?
