Thankful Musings

I'm feeling extra sentimental today, perhaps its because I'm far away from the rest of my family, perhaps its because the thought of special  holidays bring lots of special memories to mind. Yesterday was Thanksgiving and I was unable to express all that I'm thankful for here in a post, so today this post is going to get a bit erratic, brace your selfs.
 Firstly my mind has been a playground for my favorite memories they have been flooding my mind all morning and yesterday, as I said being away from half of my family never gets easy as its only happened a few times, I have been thinking about my family how I miss you all, who ever said ''They who go Feel not the pain of parting; it is they Who stay behind that suffer'' was wrong I am missing you all very much, thinking about you all helps.
  Dear thanksgiving you came much too soon this year and while I'm happy you are here I wish you would not have rushed in to my surprise unannounced.
speaking of thanksgiving, while on pintrest I saw a picture that reminded me of our thanksgivings from my childhood, when I was little my mother made my older sister, myself and younger brother a special hat this picture reminded me of those, we fancied ourselves little pilgrims with our little white bonnets fashioned in the style worn by the first settlers, and our younger brother had a cute little blue cap that reminded me of a sailors winter hat. I loved those hats, but  haven't thought about them in a very long time.

I know my family and I will have our own special celebration for giving thanks when we are all together again, but for now heres a few things I'm very thankful for.

Firstly my family you are my candle of inspiration in this life you make my life so colorful in your own special ways and I cannot imagine my life without you.
 God has surely blessed us this year with an over abundance of his grace and love, His blessings have profusely multiplied in every way. 
 Gods unmitigated love to this world that takes my breath away each and every moment, it is truly beautiful to behold. 
each breath I take on this wonderful earth that He created,  the wonder all around me and the eyes he gave me to see it. 
 Good friends near and far, Good music, and Happy moments that seem to etch themselves into my memory. 
A creative heart that I hope to never lose, and use for Gods glory. 
Colors life would be so dull with out them, 
  and a place to call home. 
and how could I forget all you wonderful friends i now have via blogs you are all wonderful and bring me happiness, especial now that you have so graciously allowed me to be so arbitrary and understand. 

Until its time to go home I'll have to be happy with thinking about home, and fill my mind with all the things  have to be thankful for in this season.  How about you, what are you thankful for I would love to hear.  
Sending you love
