This has been a fairly long and tiring week. But, by far, my favorite thing this week was going to the airport to greet one of Husband’s friends, who just got back from his deployment. We brought him some balloons and even a couple of cold beers. Before we left for the airport, I told myself, “Don’t forget the camera….don’t forget the camera…don’t forget the camera.” And you know what? I forgot the camera. Thankfully, another lady brought hers, and she captured the sweetest scene of my friend running up to greet her husband and hugging him tight. It brought tears to my eyes. And it was the perfect reminder that what is important isn’t what’s under our tree, but who is around our tree, especially if you’re lucky enough like me to have your loved one home this year. And maybe, just maybe, at some point this season, I’ll remember to have the camera ready.

So glad he is home safely in time for the are so right it's all about who not what around my tree.
Have a great weekend.
