Thankful: November 10th

Poppy The Prudent Homemaker

Today, whether the 10th or the 11th (depending on where you live and what time you read this) is a day to be grateful for those who have fought for freedom and peace--even as the news is fraught with a possible new war. I'm grateful for those who have given their lives for the cause of freedom.


What are you thankful for today?

    On the 10th, I am grateful for the peace in our land. We do not live in a country under an army of occupation; we are free, and for that blessing I am grateful. I am also grateful for our home. It is not huge but it is warm and dry and clean, and filled with love, & we are not required to house soldiers. All of those are blessings for which I am thankful to my Heavenly Father.

    Today I am thankful that through building up our food storage over some time that we had enough ingredients to make 2 family sized apple and blueberry pies :) .

  • Sandra November 11, 2017

    It is November 11th and I am so thankful for the time my husband spent in the military providing safety and security for his family and his country.

  • Roxie November 11, 2017

    Amen to that. My husband and father are retired Marines. My son, though not in the service, is working in a V.A. hospital. Those men and women deserve so much more than they get. Freedom is not free. Some pay with their life.

  • Marybeth November 11, 2017

    I am grateful to all of the women and men who have served our country. I am grateful to their families for allowing them to do this great service. I am most grateful for my Dad (a veteran) whom I love very much.

    Today I was thankful for a last picking of tender vegetables, which was more than I thought there would be. I was able to harvest almost 5 gals of lima beans, a large basket of swiss chard, and small amounts of peppers, butter peas, eggplant, potatoes, goji berries, a carrot, tromboncino squash, dill and oregano. I'm thankful that my husband helped me shell the lima beans!

    Today I am thankful for those who fought - from my earliest Dutch settlers fleeing religious persecution...to my father...and father-in-law...to my brother-in-law...and, now, my Air Force ROTC son. We need warriors who are called to protect our way of life and our freedom to worship as we choose.

  • Lea Stormhammer November 11, 2017

    I am grateful a youth retreat last night gave my husband and I free time to go on a much needed date night. My husband is a pastor and he's been so very busy lately (funerals, weddings, illnesses), it was lovely to have a couple of hours to spend together without interruption and a gift card to enjoy a meal out was extra nice too.


  • Juls Owings November 11, 2017

    it's the 11th here and we are thankful for the birth of our daughter 38 yrs ago and our son who has 16 yrs in the military.

  • Polly Wog November 11, 2017

    I have on November 11, started a tradition of honouring my mother’s two brothers and my father. I display WW2 photos of them in uniform along with badges and other items.I add the poppies that are worn every year to surround the photos. My mother’s two brothers returned to Canada but many didn’t . My mother would speak about so many woman in her generation who never married or married later because of the war. My father came after the war as a displaced person (DP) I know my involvement with modern day refugees is because of this history.

    I hope war never comes again and am thankful for the country I live in and the sacrifices others have made for my freedom.

    I do believe that more is accomplished peacefully by “ building longer tables than building higher walls”.

  • Amy November 11, 2017

    I am so thankful for our hardworking and brave military. I had the opportunity to thank a veteran yesterday. I am thankful for our freedom

  • Rhonda A. November 11, 2017

    I am thankful for growing up in a time when peace and security was the norm, in a country where we are taught to tolerate and appreciate people for their differences. I am grateful to those soldiers who have found and still fight to keep the peace in our world.

  • Jacki November 11, 2017

    I'm thankful that I have a supportive husband. I had a very stressful job that was affecting my health. He said it was time to come home and take care of myself. I was able to walk away from the stress back into my home and take care of myself and my family.

  • Sheila November 11, 2017

    Agree Brandi, thankful for freedom of worship

  • Libby November 11, 2017

    I am grateful for a killing frost to help my allergies.

    I am grateful to live in this country where we can publicly discuss different opinions, religions, and politics. Brought to us by the brilliant minds that drafted our constitution and the men & women who have risked everything to uphold it.

  • Jean November 11, 2017

    Thank you for drawing attention to our soldiers and veterans again this year. Yes, we have so much to be thankful for because they have fought for our freedoms. I am thankful and grateful for two of my sons currently serving in the military. Both are deploying within the year and have young families they will be away from. It is a sacrifice they are willing to make along with so many others.

  • momsav November 11, 2017

    Lovely sentiment, I totally agree.

  • Cindi November 11, 2017

    We're flying our flag out in front of the house today. It looks so beautiful in the sunshine, with the breeze blowing it. I, too, am thankful for our veterans.

  • ant November 11, 2017

    Wonderfully said Brandy!

    I to am thankful for the Veterans still with us and those that have passed on.

  • J November 11, 2017

    I am thankful for our veterans. I have family members heavily involved in the Canadian Armed Forces, but more importantly my great grandfather was arrested and spent several years in Stalag VIII during WW2, during which my grandmother and her 4 sisters survived on their own (the oldest was 17 at the end of the war). We are deeply and forever grateful to the Allied forces who sacrificed immensely and stood in the face of great evil.
