Marine's Surprise Christmas Homecoming Is the Best Gift Ever for His Mom (VIDEO)

Awww! 3

marine homecomingMy son is only 7 years old, so I can't really imagine what it would be like if he were a Marine stationed in some faraway place like Japan -- especially during the holidays. But I'm pretty sure I would have exactly the same reaction Stephanie Morales did when her son Gerald Morales (a Marine stationed in Japan) decided to give his mom the best Christmas present ever: A surprise homecoming. What was Stephanie's reaction? Well, if you're anything like me, watching it will bring tears to your eyes ...

See, Stephanie was truly surprised -- thanks to some serious secret-keeping on the part of her co-workers and Gerald's siblings. As far as she knew, it was just another day at work. Just another meeting on her schedule ... except this meeting would be a little bit different. Watch:

Aww, doesn't it just break your heart? But in a good way, of course. I'm sure I would be just like Stephanie if my all-grown-up son surprised me at work, looking like a big handsome man in his dress uniform ... aww! "I didn't think you'd be home for Christmas!!"

Are you expecting any military homecomings this holiday season?

So sweet! These are the types of videos that have been keeping me sane the last few weeks before my husband comes home. Can't wait!
