Thankful

Last night Mallory brought me a baby doll and said, "Ma'am, would you mind babysitting my daughter for a little while? Her name is Sarah and she's 2 months old."

"Certainly," I said.

"Thank you. I have a few more, wait right here." She subsequently brought me Elizabeth, Melissa, Molly, Mae, Snow White, Belle, Malilla, Zella, and another Sarah. The children, she explained, ranged from aged 1 month to 4 years and some of them were twins.

"That's a lot of children," I said.

"Yes, and I need you to babysit for me because I have to fly to Pennsylvania on an airplane to pick up my other daughter, Nyah." She added, "I only have girl children."

"Another daughter! Wow, you must be very busy with all these kids," I said.

She nodded, and sighed heavily. "I am very tired, all the days."




I am so thankful for my children. I am even more thankful that there are only two of them.

Happy Thanksgiving!

What an imagination! That's great! Hope you enjoy the holiday season, and I will be anxiously waiting to hear if you do in fact buy her another 'girl children' for Christmas!

I am thankful for that too! I would be tired all the days if I had that many children! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
