Being surprised and overjoyed, we dicided to drop everything and stop for a chat at a nearby coffee shop.


Is "Being" here optional, or must it be deleted? Thanks.

    I guess the original sentence might be ''Because we were surprised and overjoyed, we decided to drop everything and stop for a chat at a nearby coffee shop.'' Then we can leave out the term underlined.

    Any opinion?
