My dad is in the Navy. And on December 23rd he was told he was to leave the next morning and go out to sea. I had one night to say goodbye to my hero. For those who don’t know, the only communication you get in the Navy is email. And those are a God sent miracle. He’s been gone for almost four months. The homecoming date was changed three times. But today, my waiting was over. I went to work at four this afternoon, with no idea that this would happen just before I got off. My mom walked in as she normally does, spoke to me for a few minutes, then in comes my dad. This was the greatest surprise I’ve ever gotten.
