December 21, 2011

“I am an Active Duty HM for the U.S. Navy, and my mom and sister are a big part in my life. I had spent three months convincing them this would be the first Christmas that I wouldn’t be home. After a $698 car rental, $100 in gas, a six-hour car ride, and hiding at my mom’s best friend’s house for a day and a half, I suprised them at church on Sunday morning. The reaction was more than I expected!”
