Giving Thanks Challange
Today is day 3 of the Giving Thanks Challenge.
I was cooking dinner thinking about this post.
I wanted to tell you about my servants. I am very,
very thankful for them. They are my best friends.
Without them I couldn't spend so much time doing all
of the other things I do.
My first one is my mixer. I have a heavy duty mixer
called a Magic Mill. Because of it my bread is always perfect
and my cinnamon rolls are perfect too.
I was going to make Cream Cheese Danish and I know
I owe it all to my mixer.
Then there is my stove. I don't have to go chop wood,
though that might be okay. I have two ovens which I love,
I can knock out so many cookies at one time
I am really, really thankful for my washer and dryer.
It gets used almost every day. Oh I can' t forget
my dishwasher. It helps me keep my messes in check.
Without these things in my life I would have a very different
kind of one.
My time would be spent in different ways.
When my kids were small and all six of them were
such busy kids, I did laundry every day except Sundays.
I did about 10 loads a day.
I can't imagine doing all of that on a scrub board.
I live a very easy life compared to the women before me.
I don't even have to go out and kill a couple chickens for dinner.
And pick them and clean them.
So today, I am very thankful for the servants I have and
how they make my life so easy. I need to remember to be
thankful everyday for those things I take for granted.
