    A Military Child’s Life

    She’s getting older now. My daughter. When he comes home from work, she hears the door unlocking and she stops what she is doing to watch him walk through. Then she runs to him, and with a joy that only a toddler can have, she hugs his legs and lifts her arms to be picked up by him. He says, “Can Papa have loves?” and pressing her lips together, she sticks them out while going “mmmmmmm”. I can hear his heart melt when she does this. The love and the joy that they both feel in that moment, it’s so tangible I can almost touch it. READ MORE
