The L family wants to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! Each year we remember things we are thankful for and this year will be no different.

This is the second Thanksgiving Olivia has been home with us. It’s hard to believe that in just a couple of months she will be 3 years old and in February we will celebrate our second anniversary as a family. It’s amazing to watch her change and grow before my eyes. I never in a million years would have imagined being a mom could be so amazing and it keeps getting more and more amazing. That’s not to say we don’t have our moments because, believe me, we do – many of them. However, if another blessing is never bestowed upon us, we will still consider ourselves blessed beyond all words to have her in our family.

This is also the second Thanksgiving since Will returned home safely from Iraq. There will be an extra place set at our table in honor of those who are serving away from their families this year. While our heroes are serving away from home, we will also keep their families, the heroes on the home front, in our thoughts and prayers, too. We send our thanks to them for their service and the sacrifices they are making.

We have our health, our jobs, a roof over our head, food in our refrigerator and all the comforts we could imagine.

I hope whatever you are doing today that you are safe and you enjoy the day. Remember to count your blessings and to share a kind word and smile with someone. You might not know they need it.
