I just turned 46 on February 14th, so my big day was just last month. It was the best Birthday I’ve had by far. My daughter, a U.S. Marine surprised me with a visit.
Let me back up by saying that I never expected to see her because she already had stated to me that she was going to come home in 2 months, that she was flat broke, and that she didn’t have any time due to her training to become a firefighter in her spare time.
So, you can imagine my complete and utter shock when I was at a family planned lunch at a restaurant when all of a sudden she walks up from behind. All I could say is, “HOW ARE YOU HERE?!!!”. I’ve never had a surprise like that in my life before and I could just feel the tears welling up in my eyes.
Best thing is, she was here for 2 weeks. Oh how I love this girl and have missed her badly. Life is good.
