Thankful: November 6th

Paperwhites in the Garden The Prudent Homemaker

Today, I am so thankful that, completely unexpectedly, I found a place to perform a service I need for $45, instead of the $250 I thought I was going to have to pay at another place. I didn't know how I was going to come up with the $250, and I am so delighted to have found another place. 


What are you thankful for today?

    I'm thankful for my grandkids and the time I spend with them.

    What a blessing you received today, Brandy!

    I am thankful for a teacher in high school who reaches out to me for walks (outside when it's warm enough and inside when the air turns cold). Also, I am thankful for God's unfailing love toward me.

    Hello everyone and today I am thankful that we were able to trade the use of our land and some vegetables for him and his mother as they need it for 15kg of honey each year from his hives being here.

    What a blessing for you Brandy how wonderful :) .

    I am thankful for Deseret Industries. I stopped in on my way back from town, looking for scriptures to replace some that are checked out every week by children, in the library at our daughter’s branch, that were literally falling apart. I was able to find 3 Bibles in excellent shape for just a few dollars. One of them was a large print Bible, and even it was only $4. I think it is important for children to have access to physical scriptures as they learn about their Heavenly Father.

    I was having car problems and took the car into a dealership that gave an estimate of $300. I then took the car to an independent mechanic who thought that it was a small problem and would only charge $30.00. He was right and I was so grateful. After that I always checked with him first. It is indeed a blessing that you were able to find a needed service at a fair price.

    Today I am thankful for a loving family and good friends that make life richer.

    I’m thankful for the electric blanket I paid $5.00 for at a garage sale this Summer. I’d been looking for several years. This is a double, where our bed is a queen, but it works just fine. Love it on these cold nights leading up to Winter!

  • Rhonda A. November 07, 2017

    I am thankful I was finally able to get all our area rugs out onto our back deck and steam clean on a slightly warm day. It has been a battle this year to get this done, between dealing with DD and weather! Now we just need to clean the rooms before putting them back down...ugh!

  • lindade montreal November 07, 2017

    je dit merci pour une vie simple et ordinaire mes enfants ont fait une petite fete pour mes 58 ans juste nous 4 ce fut parfait bonne journee a vous et votre famille

  • Marivene November 07, 2017

    Bon anniversaire!

  • Susan November 07, 2017

    Merci! Bonne fete! J'ai envie d'une vie simple.

  • Amy November 07, 2017

    I am thankful that my friend brought me dinner tonight after a very long day at the hospital. It was an unexpected but so appreciated gesture.

  • Marybeth November 07, 2017

    Today I am grateful for other moms and carpooling. There is no school today but my daughter has to attend an event there from 8-11am. I work today so I asked around if anyone could carpool and got a yes. I drove them there before work and the other mom will pick up. I hate when the school makes mandatory events for the kids that are supposed to be days off and then they don't run the buses. We live 8 miles from the high school and its cold out. My daughter can't walk home.

  • Sheila November 07, 2017

    Today I am thankful for my sweet little dog that is my constant companion. He’s the best snuggler!

  • Mary November 07, 2017

    I am thankful that my husband has a job that he likes. So many either do not have a job or do not like what they do.

  • Maxine November 07, 2017

    I am thankful that I live in a free country with the right to vote. Today is election day in the small town where I am living for the winter (and it is winter--snowed here over the weekend). I am on the election board and there is a hotly-contested city council race, so I will be seeing my neighbors today.

    BTW, most places need election board workers--and we get paid for it! Although I would do it for free.

  • PollyWog November 07, 2017

    I’m thankful for the individuals that support a disabled family member.

  • Maxine November 07, 2017

    Me, too! My DD is developmentally disabled. My DH is an amputee. He does not require any assistance unless his prothesis is giving him trouble...as it sometimes does.

  • Kandace November 07, 2017

    I am thankful for my public library. I benefit it from it nearly every day. I am able to get wonderful books to read, occasional videos, and I don't have any additional costs to use this service, since it is covered by my property taxes. And then I can return them when I am finished and don't have those items "cluttering" my home.

    It seems like Christmas when I get my turn to use an item I have requested and been waiting for. I also like to think about who else might have read the book/watched the movie, and their experience of it.

  • Athanasia November 08, 2017

    Kandace, thank you... this is just what every librarian would love to hear! Every time someone walks into the library I think , ooh, will they find what they want? What suggestions can I give them? Will this or that display catch their eye into picking up something not on their mind that they didn't know they wanted??

  • Cindi November 07, 2017

    How wonderful that you were able to get what you needed at an affordable price!
    I am thankful for my hard-working and considerate husband.
