Day 28: The month you were happiest this year and why.
This year the month I was happiest was in February – February 14th to be exact because that is my Birthday and my daughter who is a US Marine SURPRISED me by coming home. She had arranged for my entire family to meet at a restaurant and then she showed up, out of the blue. It changed me forever because I’ve never had a surprise like that in my life. It was truly a blessing. She stayed home for 2 weeks and we had a great time together.
She showed up, in uniform with dozen red roses and a few Birthday gifts for me; one being a charm for my Pandora bracelet – a charm of “the world” – because she knew she’d soon be traveling all around the globe and that was another way for me to think about her. I love that charm and look at it often and think about her and the sacrifices that she has made. I’m so proud of her and her accomplishments.
