My Heart Melts for You!

She waited quietly behind the fence for the plane to land. Six long months since she saw him leave for Korea with his Army Unit. Tears were rolling down her face, landing on her very pregnant belly. As each plane landed, she felt her heart sink.

Finally, his plane landed and pulled up to the entryway. She waited, her heart pounding, to see his face. He ran out, smiling and felt his heart melt as he looked at his wife carrying the child that he would soon hold. Home. Her. That baby girl. What could be better than that?

    Repeated over and over WWII & Korea and on and on. Rhetorically….do we need wars to show such moments or joining together in big hugs? Hmmm? What else quite rivals that? 6 month at the North Slope? A year in China? I have known men, recently, that came home from such distances and rejoiced to be home. A year in China? Hmm? Complicated for a new baby? 🙂
