Blogs We Love: Surprise, I'm Home!

If the play on the field at this year's Super Bowl left you feeling blah, some of the commercials may just have warmed your heart and even, drew a tear or two.

Social media was abuzz in the weeks after the game with talk of the military-themed commercials and specifically Budweiser's 1-minute spot welcoming home Lt. Chuck Nadd of Winter Park, Fla. Even for those of us who have endured dozens of welcome home moments, that wave of emotion during a joyous homecoming never gets old. The tears flowed freely across the nation in that one, hot minute.

Occasionally, similar videos pop up on Facebook and You Tube. Each is an instant shock of love to the heart. Each leaves a majority of us blathering on with tears of happiness.

Do you love watching them? Here's a way to see them all in one spot. 


The site bills itself as the #1 site for videos of surprise military homecomings. It is a part of a larger conglomerate of blogs called Feel Good Blogs where visitors can view military homecomings, surprise wedding proposals, videos of moms-to-be revealing the good baby news to family and friends as well as videos of cute animals. Basically, this site is all things warm and fuzzy.

The Welcome Home section also features videos of four-legged family members welcoming home their service members.

And if you have a video of your service member arriving home, they want it! You can submit your homecoming moment to the site to share as well.

But before you sit down to watch any of the videos, grab a box of Kleenex. You are going to need it.
