This years Thanksgiving was no different than last. There is still an empty seat, still a hurt in our hearts yet gratitude continues to overflow.

This year, much like last, we hosted the local law enforcement alongside our family. We had a few troopers and cop show up! Thank you to Anita, Miah, Russell, and James for making it a point to stop by even if just for pie!

It not only warms our hearts to give back, but it also makes us feel closer to Josh.

To be honest, if Josh were here, I’d still host. I appreciate Law Enforcement and all they do for our community. They are our extended family.

So, this year much like last, we celebrated together and provided for those working and unable to be with their families.

Amelia got to see Frozen 2 in theatre with her Aunt, we actually watched the Thanksgiving parade followed by the dog show and overall it was a pretty good day! Bulldog won Best in Show and by the look on Emmy’s face, you can tell she’s thrilled…

We still lit our 5 candles, and said our poem in Josh’s honor and then celebrated with laughs, love and gratitude.
