The family will be here late tonight... I am pretty stinking excited about it. I haven’t seen my nieces in 8 months, my brother in 7 and my parents... well I saw my mom in April. They haven’t seen our new home, or the Hubby since he’s been home. This also marks the FIRST time I have ever hosted a holiday before... I AM TERRIFIED!!
I am thankful for so many things this year – the safety of Hubby is high on my list. This Thanksgiving take a moment to remember all those that won’t make it to the table this year – Those still deployed, those rehabilitating in a hospital somewhere and those that paid the ultimate sacrifice.
I volunteer with an organization, The Got Your Back Network, that works with families of the fallen. We are preparing for our 3rd Project Gratitude event – taking 25 widows and daughters to Miss America. If you would like to donate items for their gift bags or financially towards something for the program please let me know.
