Vintage Thanksgiving

November 26, 2009 Uncategorized 12


I love vintage postcards, perhaps it’s my love of history and the Victorian Era, but I just love searching for these images.

I have so very much to be thankful for. The big things
My health
My family
The life we have together.

The little things(but not small at all):
Friends both online and those near to me I see all the time
Friends found again via facebook

I blog a lot about my family and my trials with helping my children grow up, I’m never sure if it’s correct to say raising them or rearing them. I feel I fail miserably quite often, but then, every now and then I see a glimmer of something I may have done right. My three children are really wonderful amazingly bright young people. They are still young and developing and they make mistakes, that is when my(and Kevin’s) job becomes more difficult, but in the end, I am so thankful they are such interesting little beings. Who wants a boring teen? Not me…ha ha!

So as I make yet another timeline list of when to put what in the oven today, and how we’ll eat it all, clean it up and get to the movies tonight……..I take this time to thank you all for your friendship and support. Comment love is awesome………..and today is a day to give………..so I’ll be dropping by to give you yours!!!

    Hope your day has been FANTABULOUS! Our bird just went in the oven, we are getting ready to finish the GB house then head to the park for some fresh air.

    Anita, great Thanksgiving Day post. I often feel the same way about parenting … there is just no magic formula to know if we are doing it all as we should. But I think you are doing a great job!

    Anita, I’ve been a little overwhelmed these last few days so I am way behind on catching up with my bloggy friends. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!

    Again, parallel lives! I also love vintage images.

    Isn’t it amazing that the most important job on earth – parenting – comes with no instructions and almost no feedback? We just shoot in the dark and hope we hit the target now and then. A friend who is a county DA for a large metro area said that even on our worst days as mothers, we’re still light years ahead of what he sees. So take heart.

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I took a week off from the computer and I’ve been playing catch up this week seeing how everyone is doing. Hope you are well!

    P.S. You need to post a complete review of Lady and Sons! I’d love to know what everyone had!
