The Nicest Thing Anyone Has Ever Said to Me

The other night we were driving home from dinner. Tywana and I were talking about a friend of a friend who is in the reserves and has just been called up to serve 15 months in Iraq.  He's in his mid-40s.  Kayla piped up from the back seat "Daddy, you aren't going to join the reserves.  Are you?"  I explained to her that I was too old to join the reserves. She said "Good.  I need you here.".  Then, she seemed to start to correct herself but said "I want you here, too.".  Shayna joined in and said "Daddy, we do need you here.  But, we want you here, too."

Made my day...
