Octavius November The Prudent Homemaker 

I’m thankful that even though my youngest decided that 3:40 a.m. was the perfect time to be up for the day, I was able to take a nap at the same time he did later in the day.

What are you thankful for today?

    Today I am thankful for good medical care here in the USA. Today, my niece needed to be seen, due to an ear ache she developed in the night. They got her in this morning, and she is now on the antibiotics she needs. We are reading a wonderful book, “Daring to Hope”, which is the sequel to “Kisses From Katie” for homeschool right now. It tells about a woman who cares for children, and hurt and sick people in Uganda. It is difficult for them to get the proper medical care there, as we know….but it really drove the lesson home when we read our chapter this morning, and then headed off to the doctor right afterwards. There was a small co-pay, in Uganda, you must pay before they will even start treating you….We waited an hour (they appologized)–in Uganda, you may wait days, We drove there in our car, they may have to walk miles…and so on. I have much to be thankful for. (BTW, I highly recommend these books–so inspiring).
