Vintage Thanksgiving Clipart- Happy Thanksgiving

As I take time this week to count my blessings, I realize I have so much to be thankful for. I'm a truly blessed woman, and it does not escape me that God has showered me with too many blessings for me to count or even recognize.  Sometimes while we are enduring tragedy, or feeling lost we don't even realize that there will be light at the end of the tunnel, and blessings we can't even imagine.

If you had told me earlier this year when I suddenly and tragically lost my sister that I would feel blessed, I wouldn't have believed you.  From that tragedy I learned we should never take our families for granted and my younger sister and I are closer than ever.  I believe it is essential to make the best we can out of what can seem, the worst situations.

Sometimes I think we gain our greatest strength from picking ourselves up one more time, and counting our blessings.  Let's face it, the alternative is too depressing, staying down and drowning in our own sorrows is the saddest way I could think of to exist.

I know so many of you my sweet friends are facing difficulties in these challenging times.  Know that I am grateful for each and every one of you.  That you bring me joy and happiness, that you are a blessing to me.

So this Thanksgiving, I'm choosing Joy over Sorrow, Triumph over Tragedy, Love over Hate.
I choose to count my blessings, and overcome my obstacles, I choose Faith, Hope, and Love, for they have never failed me.

I'm hoping you enjoy this vintage clip-art that I've selected and enhanced for you.  Use them to make greeting cards, to make place-cards, to make a garland.

Accent the edges (or whatever you like) with some glitter, to really make it pop.  Print them on vellum paper and wrap them around candle votives.

So from my home to yours, I wish you a Joyful, and Blessed Thanksgiving, but most of all, I wish you, Faith, Hope, and Lots & Lots of Love.

  6. I seldom write responses, but i did some searching and wound up here
    "Vintage Thanksgiving Clipart- Happy Thanksgiving". And I do have some
    questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or
    does it give the impression like a few of the comments look like left
    by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
