#reverb10 Day 30 - Gift

This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable.  What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year? - Holly Root

I'll do one of each.  I just turned to DH to tell him the prompt and said that I was inclined to put his homecoming as the best gift I received this year.  He said, "Don't lie, it's this iPad."  Yes, that would be my iPad...the one that he gave me...the one that he's playing on right now.  :)  He loves the iPad - playing Words With Friends with Megan, Erin, and Sara.  He also loves playing Solitaire and trying to ensure that his score is always higher than mine.  He's very competitive, and it's hard to get it away from him sometimes.  I even caught him coming out of the bathroom with it the other day - HA HA HA!

The best gift was having him come home safely to me, after eleven months in Afghanistan.  I was positively glowing that day, and for good reason.  <3
