There are some things in life that just make you feel good inside. One family received a surprise during halftime at a game. This family deserves what they got, and they are very thankful. The children of the family are dealing with their father being in the military and being away from home. They attend middle school, and the teachers and students at the school decided to show them how much they are appreciated.
The children knew that their father was supposed to be home at the end of November. This would have been a Thanksgiving surprise for them so that they could celebrate the holiday together.
However, he talked with the school in order to create a surprise like none other, something that had to be kept quiet. The game was a football game involving seventh graders.
All of the family was asked to go to the center of the field during halftime. Thinking it was just a recognition for a military family member, they did as they were asked. One of the children plays football for the team.
The father came out on the field to surprise his family early, and the tears started flowing. Everyone was thrilled for the family as they shared in this special homecoming.
