Leslie Hornado Showed Up at Her Mom’s House with the Best Thanksgiving Gift

Dear Mami, Thank You

Thank you season is here – but how do you put into words a thank you big enough to show your appreciation for everything our parents have done for us? Leslie Hornado’s mom became a single mother of three by the time she was 20. The Los Angeles DJ remembers going through such rough times, she and her sisters only had one egg to share of breakfast. But it was going through times like these that made her family stronger and their bond tighter. After watching Leslie’s surprise thank you to her mom, you’ll want to run to find your parents to hug them.

What are you thankful for this season? Let us know in the comments below and don’t forget to click the share button below to inspire others to thank their loved ones.

You gotta sprinkle in your latin classics too. DJ Lezlee nods to the 70’s queen, Ersi Arvizu, for this old bolero.

Yes, The Bieb can be a part of your holiday soiree. This song off his new album is one of Lezlee’s guilty pleasures — and she thinks it should be yours too.

Selena is always a welcomed voice. Since DJ Lezlee knows you can’t ever play just one Selena song, she suggests this as a good starter.
