A Week of Thankfulness

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

        

As we approach Thanksgiving this week, use it as an opportunity to show your gratefulness. We have many, many blessings, and it is important to share that with our children. If you know widows or widowers in your church or community, reach out to them this week and bless them with a card or a visit and a baked good. If you have a big meal at your home for Thanksgiving, invite them to join you.

The Holiday season can be difficult for those who have lost loved ones. Our family has had many losses, and we miss them daily. It just seems to be closer to our awareness at the Holidays.

If you have ideas on how to show Thankfulness, please share those with me. You can email me at Tami@TamiFox.com.

This week we are going to detail clean in the Master Bedroom. You can also give these missions to your children for them to do in their bedrooms this week. We deserve a clean, peaceful room to sleep in each night. So let’s work on making it beautiful and peaceful.
