My daughter's young Marine is home...until Monday (arrived Friday morning). We've kept the secret of his visit a secret for a few weeks now, but it didn't spoil in the keeping. We know they will be apart far more days then they will be together, which makes his visit all the more bittersweet.
She was so surprised her knees buckled..

First there was this


Then this


and this


and this


which lead to this (a new set of "promise" rings he bought - more "official" than their matching Marine ones he says)


but my favorite of the day is this


because as grown up as he is, he still loves his mama.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the military families this weekend, those who grieve, those who wait, and those who serve.

That's so sweet! I'm glad she got some time with him before he leaves again!

My thoughts and prayers are with our military families as well along with yours.

I don't cry at books, or commercials, few tv shows, but this was so sweet - thank you for sharing!
