The Best Christmas Present

Something to warm the cockles of your heart.

"U.S. Army mechanic Matthew Windisch gave his parents, Joann and Mark, quite a surprise when he greeted them at a Flyers game on Thursday night. As far as his parents knew, Windisch, who is stationed in Korea, wasn't expected home until December 20. Joann and Mark were invited to help unwrap a rather large gift, revealing a life-size G.I. Joe box with Matthew inside."

I love the looks on the family's faces....from the shocked realization that yes, that's really him/her to the pure, rest-of-the-world-has-disappeared joy at seeing them. It gets me every time.
Glad you enjoyed it.
