Many of us might find ourselves away from the people we love for an extended amount of time. In some cases, it might be a family responsibility that causes us to be out of town for a few weeks. It might also be traveling for business that has us away from the people we love. It isn’t typically long before we get homesick and we might even start missing those people on the same day we leave. They also suffer, because they miss us while we are gone.
Although anyone might have to go away, people who are in the military often find themselves more than a little away, they might be halfway around the world in a foreign country. The time they are away can stretch into months or perhaps even a year or longer and they might not get home as often as they like. That isn’t even to mention that they might be in the middle of a very dangerous situation while they are gone. It could be a warzone or perhaps a minor conflict but we can’t help but worry about them while they are there.
Although it can be difficult to be apart, it is a real relief when we are able to get back together again. Those moments are so special that we might even want to share them with others. Perhaps you have seen some of those reunion videos that just seem to be so popular once they are posted. As you are about to see, some go viral for all the right reasons.
In the video below, you see a solider that is wanting to surprise his mother. He is sitting at a plaza reading a newspaper and some people might even be wondering why he is there. Suddenly, his mother comes into view and she is about to walk right by him. In fact, she does walk by but then she catches sight of him out of the corner of her eye. What happens next is going to make you smile from ear to ear.
Watch the reunion for yourself in this video:
