Christmas is the season for reuniting with families who rarely see other. Oftentimes we sent them Christmas cards with family pictures together, happy and smiling. But not all families spend time together during this important holiday. A military wife came up with a brilliant idea that would make them complete in Christmas. This funny yet heartwarming pictures reminds us that distance is not a hindrance for us to be joyous.
Brandon Sistrunk is a father of four beautiful children. He won’t be home for Christmas so her wife made something special.
His wife Ashley took a picture with kids holding a sign “Christmas”.
While Brandon who is based in Iraq also took a picture of himself holding a “Merry” sign.
Through photoshop, Ashley combined their photos to make it a their family picture for Christmas.
“Having a piece of your heart across the world, fighting for your country. It’s just a whole other level of emotions,” she said.
“We tell the kids, ‘Yes, other kids have their daddy home right now. But their daddy is out being a superhero, keeping our country safe and that’s important ― that’s an important job.”
