The Best Day Of My Life
By Happiestdayofmylife • June 29, 2015
Today I really want to share some happy news and get it off my chest in a good way. I am a man in my 50s who has cried more today than I ever have before, and I am not ashamed.
It's been a rough year for my family. My only grandchild got sick and almost died. My oldest child, my daughter is in the armed forces and has been stationed overseas. We haven't seen her in over a year. Now for today: My grandson received a lifesaving bone marrow transplant. No one in our family was a match, we all got tested, but a stranger that we have never met saved his life. Today his father, my oldest son officially became a PhD, after being the the first person in our family to attend and graduate from college. Because of the historic ruling by the Supreme Court a hospital chaplain officiated the wedding of my younger son and his wonderful partner. And in a total surprise to us all, my daughter came home from her assignment early to so she could see her nephew and be with the family. It has been a long, tiring and exhausting day, but it was also the best day of my life.
