Inspiration Station: A must see!

Hooray, inspiration station is on it's second post. I hope you guys like this one. And for those of you that have followed me for awhile may notice that I have already posted this video before. ((Wait what?! That's blogging suicide. You can't post the same thing twice!-- FALSE)). When something is THIS moving...I can post it twice :)

This video is long, but even just watching 30 seconds of it would be enough to lift your spirits for the rest of the day {whole point of these Friday posts, right?}. And since yesterday was Veterans Day I don't think I could have come up with a more appropriate "inspiration station". Enjoy friends! 

Oh, wait.. one more thing. Grab a box of Kleenex. Because this is how I was while watching this clip:
Photobucket


What did you guys think?! I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. Do you have any great inspiring 'homecoming' or 'surprise(!)' stories to share whether they be yours or someone you know? It doesn't even have to be a solider story. I want to hear any/all stories you guys would like to share! I may even try to do a follow up post with your inspirational feedback!

Have a MAGICAL weekend friends! Love you all :)

damn you Sam! homecomings get me EVERY TIME! even the one about the dog being so excited the soldier returned. They get me because I know exactly how it feels to instantly break in tears because you are so happy when you see someone for the first time in a year +. so MY homecoming story is that during my senior year, my uncle came back from Iraq, and we drove to Arkansas to welcome him home. We got up at 3 a.m. to wait for him, and they didn't land until almost 6! when they came running into the auditorium where we were all gathered, everyone just instantly started to cheer, scream, and cry all at once. It's hard to describe how happy you are in that moment to see that loved one return.
