An Early Thanksgiving Blessing

Next week will be a flurry of activity--I am hosting Thanksgiving and putting up the church Christmas Tree--so I thought I would celebrate a little Thanksgiving with you now.  I am in shock about how fast Thanksgiving came this year!  Seems it just came roaring once November began.  How about you, are you feeling it rushing at you too?

Anyway, here are a few of the decorations I love at this time of the year.


I bought the pilgrim couple at a craft show years ago and discovered that there were more pieces in the set and they were Indians!  I have some Choctaw in my lineage and wanted that represented--I'm not sure of the tribe of these particular Indians, but I feel a kindred spirit with them, just the same.


The details are wonderful on them.  The pumpkins in the Pilgrim's skirt are separate, as are the ears of corn in the Indian's basket. 


In case I don't have time to post next week, I'm going to wish you all a very Happy and Thankful Thanksgiving.  I am very thankful for you reading my blog, among my many other blessings.  May your hearts overflow with gratitude and your plates be full next Thursday.  Robin

Thankful for these great blogs too!
