My Daddy

Today was the best day of my life. This morning I got up thinking it was going to be a sad depressing day because my dad was fighting in the war in iraq. I got dressed and went downstairs to eat. My mom looked sad but I noticed she had a swing in her step and was holding back a smile. I went to school. When I got there my friend came up and said I am sorry about your dad. She knew I didn't like to talk about it. It seemed that everyone I talked to talked about my dad. The teacher even mentioned something about my dad to the whole class. The teacher gave us a worksheet about the army. When she gave me mine she also gave me a card. The card had a picture of my dad. It said I love you sweetie look up you should know who this is from. I had no clue. I looked up and it took me a minuet to realize that the person I was stairing at was my DAD. My mouth dropped and I put my hands to my face. I got up and ranti my dad and jumped into his arms. He held me for a long time and I was crying tears of joy into him. I didn't care that I was in front of my 7th grade class. I was so happy to see my dad. It has been 2 years since I had seen him and there he was standing in my class room with me in his arms. Everyone knew what was going to happen and that was why they all talked about my dad. My mom even knew but it hurt her to talk about him. We were finally back to one big happy family just the 3 of us. It was the best surprise I had ever gotten and I hope that it happens to someone with family in the military too. As I said today was the best day and nothing can top it not one thing. I love my dad and it hurts more than you could believe when someone you love is gone into war. But it is the best feeling when they come back home not hurt.
