After being away for an entire year from that special person, the woman's instincts were still as sharp as ever.
Surprising people after being away from them for some time has become one of the most wholesome and creative trends. As common as the gestures get, the unique reactions from loved ones make every effort worth it every single time. More than anything else, at the moment, it is the overwhelming love that tries to make its way through expression. u/SoloFlow786 shared a video on Reddit of a son who surprised his mother after being away for a whole year. The mom who knew something was fishy, couldn’t help but feel her motherly instincts whisper to her. The family was seated in a restaurant having a meal when the waiter arrived.
The waiter put down the beverage for the mother and presumably mentioned the name of the same, as is usually done. Looking rather suspicious about the get-up, the mother looked at him to get a glance at his face. Unfortunately, the waiter had a cap and a mask on and was facing in a different direction from the mother as he attended to the rest of the members. As soon as the waiter said something, the mother couldn’t stop looking at him. She looked intently understanding that the waiter possessed quite a few features like those of her son.
The mom spoke to the rest of the table in wonder. Though the audio wasn’t audible, it was evident she was trying to figure out what was up. The waiter then revealed his face by taking off the cap and mask and there was the mom’s charming, young boy with his mischievously sweet smile, waiting for his mom’s reaction to the surprise. The mom, overwhelmed with mixed emotions, caught her head and hid her face as she tried to grasp the wholesome moment. Her son immediately came over, bent down towards her seat and hugged her with the sweetest peck on her cheek.
The mom, still unable to face her son who had been away from her for a whole year, continued to sit with her head in her hand. The young man, rendering chuckles of joy, bent down once again to comfort his mom, after which she mustered the courage to stand up and embrace her son warmly. With over 7K upvotes, many commenters shared the joy and could feel the goosebumps for the mom’s mixed emotions. u/feverythingstaken said, “I don't know what they’re saying, but that mom recognized her son as soon as he came up to the table. That’s love.” u/genrlokoye said, “Yeah, she’s looking around like, ‘Is no one going to comment on this?!’”
u/IED117 said, "Yep, that's Mom. With only two inches of face showing, she couldn't be fooled. Cap on his head, mask on his face, and she still immediately knew. She was looking around like have I lost my f**king mind? Am I seeing him everywhere?” Others shared how their mothers too don’t miss looking for them and recognize them in an instant. Many applauded the power of maternal instincts, like the mom displayed in the video. u/iamjackslackoffricks said, “That just gave me the biggest smile. I swear my mom knows when me or my sister walks in the room. She perks right up and looks for us.”
