CUTESVILLE Before I had kids I'd watch a movie or read a story about a father and their child and I'd have a reaction like, "That's cute. What's for dinner?"

Now I see a father give his kid a high-five and I tear up and react with a, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. I never need to eat again because this is enough to keep me alive forever."

Keep that in mind about me when you watch this video and just imagine the waterworks that were unleashed.

This little girl's father was deployed and she got a very special package from him. She opens it up to find a teddy bear dressed as a soldier and she even mentions that he is dressed like daddy. If that's not cute enough, then we hear the bear talk and it's her dad telling her how much he loves and misses her.

Her reaction is nothing short of priceless, and I was immediately destroyed. I'm such a good father that I pushed my own kid out of the way when he stepped in front of the screen to see what was going on. I mean, cuteness was happening here, I can't be bothered, I'm a father for crying out loud. I relate.

Anyway, good luck watching this with a dry eye. Another great video to remind us of the good in the world amongst all the ugliness. Share the video today and share a smile.
