In this video, soldier husband surprised wife two days after Mother's Day. Actually, she had been begging him for months about when he would be able to come home, and he had her totally convinced that he was not going to be able to come at all.
The moment she saw him was just unreal. She was reaching into her fridge for some drinks and getting up to hand one to her mother-in-law, and then she saw the boots, the uniform, and then the face.
It was just complete joy, disbelief and relief, which is why she fell on the floor and sobbed uncontrollably. It was the surprise of a lifetime!
