Thankful: November 24th

Wreath over bed The Prudent Homemaker

I was thankful for a quiet day spent at home. Though it was Black Friday, I did no shopping. I did no cooking (so thankful for leftovers!). I read a book and relaxed! 


What are you thankful for today?

    I am grateful for a last minute shopping trip with DD on Black Friday. She was invited to a birthday party and needed to buy a gift (she used her own money to buy it, too). While at the mall, looking for the perfect B-day gift, I also did some secret detective work. DD happily pointed out some things that she really liked, which I then returned later with daddy to buy. Hubby and I had already planned to do some Black Friday shopping, so this worked out perfect! One item was a squishy food shaped "toy" that DD thought would be very helpful as a stress ball to use at school when she felt anxious. All for anything that might help her deal with her anxiety! So thankful to check a few more Christmas items off the list.

    Thank you, Jeannie. I saw her everyday and yes, very difficult x

  • Jeannie November 26, 2017

    My mother is just turned 85 and I check on her every day to make sure she is fine. It is hard to watch her decline.
    I dread "that" day. I know you are hurting.

  • Natalie November 27, 2017

    Thank you Jeannie. Best wishes to you and your dear Mother x

  • Ellie's friend from Canada November 25, 2017

    Condolences to you and your family. It is always very difficult to lose one's mother but she will live on in your thoughts and memories.

  • natalie November 25, 2017

    Thank you, Ellie’s Friend. Thank you for your thoughtful words. She was such a strong character that she will live on in our memories x

    Natalie, I am so sorry for your loss. I'm going to presume that you are Christian, which might be a mistake on my part, but if you celebrate Christmas, this is going to be a very difficult year for you. Just know that next year won't be as hard and the subsequent years will not be as hard either. It takes time to recover from this, but you will and what you will remember are all the fun times and the good times, not the sorrow that you are feeling right now. I wish you peace and contentment this season.

  • Natalie November 26, 2017

    Mari yes, I am a Christian (although my Mother’s ancestors weren’t) and I shall find Christmas difficult as you say. Thank you for your encouraging words that each Christmastide will get a little easier. There were fun and good times and these must overcome the sorrow near the end. Peace and contentment to you too x

  • Pam McCormick November 25, 2017

    I can't tell you enough how sorry I am for your Mom's death
    Lost my Mom 5yrs ago and my Dad in March

  • Natalie November 26, 2017

    Thank you Pam. I am sorry to hear that you lost your Mom too and your Dad so recently also. That must be very hard for you. Prayers from me to them tonight for you x

  • Patti November 25, 2017

    I’m so sorry for your loss Natalie.

    Thank you so much Patti - I much appreciate that x
