Thanksgiving Arrangement The Prudent Homemaker

Today didn’t go as I had planned, yet I still managed to accomplish several needed things today, thanks to help from my family. My two youngest children were ill, but everyone helped to make them as happy and as comfortable as possible, and they took turns reading to and holding my youngest and helping extra in the kitchen so I could hold him when he only wanted mom. I’m grateful that everyone pitched in and helped.

What are you thankful for today?
