Thanksgiving Greetings

Up here in the far north, Thanksgiving celebrations are a distant memory...but I send my warmest Thanksgiving greetings to all of you who live south of the 49th!

This card is from an antique postcard book given to me by my grandfather when I was a child...all were postcards sent to Miss Lillian Arnold in the early 1900's. This Thanksgiving greeting came from a friend named Bea...and was mailed from Nelson, B.C. in 1913.

Today I will pass it along to all of my American friends and my brother and his family in my sister and her boys in south Texas...extended family in several states...and many wonderful friends old and new.

May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving!


  1. Always give thanks in everything!
    I'm giving thanks for fellowship with a great growth group.
    Thanks for your leadership and friendship.

  2. What a beautiful card, and I love the name it included. . .
    I'm thankful for you today too Judy. . .it's been such a delight getting to know you.

  3. Thank you for the greeting!

    It must be nice to have so much time inbetween your Thanksgiving and Christmas!

    i have been so blessed in getting to know you judy....happy thanksgiving to all my bloggyfriends!

  5. Thank you dear one! Our day will be filled with relaxation and food. : ) Hugs to you!

  6. As someone who lives south, far south, of the 49th, I want to send you a big "thank you" for your good wishes on this, our Thanksgiving Day. The card is you ever wonder who Miss Lillian Arnold was and what sort of life she lived?

    Those postcards could be used to make a great story I bet. Each one elaborated upon for a chapter...

  7. Judy....I have been 'surfing' the friendship blogs late today but I hope your day was very blessed indeed. I couldn't agree with all those who posted more...I am most grateful today and always for the friends I have met and for you, as one of them...your constant care,love and prayers.
