YAY! All is right in the world. Well every thing except our government leaders. But we won't talk about that kind of stuff. It's a family blog and things could get ugly....
His flight got in around 7pm Friday night. The boys and I were going to be there before the flight with balloons and a welcome home banner, but the dang tail wind was so strong he beat us there. So we just drove up and he hopped in. We went to the Outback for dinner and had the nicest thing EVER happen to us. An older couple came in and was seated next to us shortly after we started eating our appetizers. In true Sterling fashion, he leaned over and started talking to the gentleman, who's name happened to be Stephen, and that got the whole thing started.
We talked back and forth through out the rest of the meal, and as they finished their meal and paid their bill, we said our good-byes. Shortly after they left, our server came to our table and asked us if we were finished and then told us that the couple who had been there paid our bill. Talk about shocked. Our bill alone was $80.00. Needless to say, we were humbled and grateful. We're not sure why they did it. Perhaps it was because Brandon is in the service, or because they really enjoyed the company of our sweet children. We will never know, but where ever they are, THANK YOU.
I hope that we can some day do for someone else what they did for us Friday night.
