Thanks for sharing!


Now you've got me crying. What a wonderful story!


What a beautiful story! Thank you so much for writing that.


What a great story! My brother in law went to Iraq off and on for 2.5 years. His little girl was less than a year when he left, and had a similar reaction to him when he came back home. Its great to see how he is now daddy's-little-girl. Thanks for the great start to a Monday.


As a fellow proud "military brat" (both my husband and me thank you very much!) I can appreciate a story like this!

My mom tells of a story when my dad had to go remote to Alaska when I was too young to understand. I reacted much the same way to him when he came back - wanted nothing to do with this stranger. She says one day the 3 of us were going for a walk and he was holding my mom's hand and I pushed it away :)


Awesome Post. My kids are military brats also. What a nice memory. I had Skipper too.


I was enthralled. Especially as his duffel bag hit the driveway! I think I might have sighed that contented lovesick sound of sigh.

Very sweet Faith, so glad you shared it. :-)

I was a over a year old when my Dad came home from Vietnam and the story goes I didn't like him one bit and he didn't know what to do with me either. LOL

Thanks for sharing.


That's such a tear jerker! I loved it!


Absolutely, Beautifully, Wonderful Memory!


Oh this was such a sweet memory for you to share with us! I was glued to the screen. My husband just came into the computer room to tell me goodnight while I was reading it and lol, I just mumbled at him and never stopped reading! I loved reading about that duffel bag hitting the driveway! Wonderful! And how your Daddy gave you Skipper before he left 'cause he would miss Christmas and birhdays! My heart melted when I read that part!

Wow Faith, thank you so much for sharing this with us!


Thank you for sharing such a beautiful memory. Picturing your father pulling up in a taxi and your mother running out crying with joy - what a priceless image that is.


That's a beautiful story! Thanks for sharing.
