A Vintage Patriotic Thanksgiving Part I

There are so many things to be thankful for ...
One of them is my personal freedom ...

I feel blessed to be living in the USA ...

I'm grateful to all of the men and women
that serve and have served in the military ...

Their devotion and passion
runs very deep and true ...

They deserve our respect
and our admiration ...

They deserve our prayers ...

I'm also thankful for their families ...
They sacrifice alot in their lives, too ...

I'm grateful for the protection
that our military gives to us ...

I'm proud to be able to say that
I honor these amazing soldiers ...

What they do for us, daily, should
not go without recognition ...

This year, especially, I am
praying harder than ever before ...

And I'm holding them and their
loved ones close to my heart ...


Indeed, there's much to be thankful for ...

God bless ...

Until another time ... Pearl

Pearl, These are so very unique! Who would have thought, ...patriotic Turkey cards! But they do serve as a reminder to be Thankful we live in a free country, no matter how turned around things seem to be at the moment. We still have so much to be Thankful for!

Hope the week is going well for you! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

This is a beautiful tribute Pearl. I love the adorable vintage postcards. I am starting to post again, but find it a challenge to balance.

I am now taking care of my dear sweet mother-in-law. She has Alzheimer's and is in the beginning stages. We pray that the pill she is taking stop its progression will keep her with us for a long time. She and I call it her "smart" pill. God is good and I am thankful for all He is doing in my life.

I pray that you are doing well to my friend. God bless you Pearl. Kathi
