The festivities began early in the morning on Friday and were planned to continue through the weekend. Many families had come to town to be a part of the fiesta.
The weather was suppose to be beautiful. Sunshine combined with perfect temperatures.
There was an excitement in the air and everyone was laughing and dancing in the streets. Except for little Jenny. She couldn't get excited about the fiesta. Her father was suppose to be home but had failed to show up when expected. And she couldn't help but worry.
Jenny was at the supper table playing with her food when she heard the crowd laughing and dancing in front of her house. Jenny wasn't in the mood to join them.
Suddenly, the door flew open and surprised Jenny. Her father was standing there in front of her with a wide grin.
Jenny jumped up and flew into his arms, beaming. Daddy was home.
Together they joined the festive crowd, laughing and dancing.
When daddy is home, life is good.
