When her daughter returns home after 4 years away, this mom is so overcome with emotion that she actually faints. What a touching reunion!
Parents want nothing more than for their children to succeed and be happy. There is not much that any mother or father would not do if it meant a better life for their child. However, as all parents understand, children grow and eventually move out, creating a life of their own.
This means parents may not see their children as much as they'd like. Circumstances in a grown child's life may take them several hundred, even thousands of miles away from their mom and dad. While parents know that children must be able to live their lives as they see fit, it doesn't mean that parents enjoy being away from their offspring.
Daughter Returns Home And Surprises Mother
A short video posted on YouTube shows how much a woman missed her grown-up daughter. The 40-second clip, recorded in the Philippines, begins with a woman standing silently and unexpectedly at the back of an opened van.
Behind the woman, the van is decorated, complete with gold and green balloons and lettering that indicates that this is a birthday celebration. But then something unexpected happens right behind the woman with her back to the vehicle.
The vehicle's front passenger side door swings open, and a young woman who wears a hat and a face mask and carries a bouquet of flowers emerges.
Text in the video points out that the woman with the flowers is the daughter of the woman waiting near the vehicle. The daughter returns home after leaving to work abroad. They have not seen one another for four years.
Once the young woman reaches her mother, the emotions are instant. The mother bursts into tears as she collapses into her daughter for a hug before passing out from shock and surprise. They both fall to the ground.
The video concludes with the two of them standing back up, but with mom never letting go of her daughter.
Proverbs 22:6 "If a child is trained up in the right way, even when he is old, he will not be turned away from it."
