I was flipping channels New Year’s Day when I chanced upon the annual Rose Parade and this beautiful scene:
The woman and her son were taking photos of the float for military dogs. According to the announcers covering the event, the woman thought they had won a contest where they could take photos up close. Little did they know that there was a surprise waiting for them at the float: her husband --a sergeant stationed in Afghanistan -- was on the float! He walked over to have a tearful reunion with his family just as his son recognized him and ran over to him.
It was such a sweet and beautiful reunion and I teared up when I saw it. I cried a lot of happy tears watching them.
What a way to start the New Year!
