NORMAN — I never have really spent a Christmas with my dad because he is always overseas in Bahrain, a country halfway across the world. He lives in California because he is in the Navy, so he doesn’t have a choice.
One time when I was 5, I got to go see him for Christmas. I thought I was one of the luckiest kids. It was fun, just my dad, my brother and me. I got so much stuff, but the best present of all was getting to see him. No present could top that.
