The best present is someone’s presence. For a mother who has a child working abroad, a surprise visit is truly a priceless gift!
On TikTok, user @Itchan shared the heartwarming surprise they prepared for their mother. Their sister works as an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) and hasn’t been able to come home to the Philippines for three years. They realized that her presence would be the perfect gift for their mother. But instead of just an ordinary homecoming, the family decided to prepare a surprise.
So, 2 days before their mother’s birthday, the sister wore a facemask and a cap to pretend to be a sales agent. The family gathered along with their mother as they discussed several documents. As the family talked, their mother didn’t notice her daughter in disguise.
The family suggested that their mother pose and take a photo with the “sales agent.” The two even had their arms around each other. Then, the sister removed her facemask and cap to surprise their mother.
Her mother’s reaction was priceless as she hugged the daughter she had missed for a long time! The video shows how emotional the mother was, as if she didn’t want to let go of their embrace.
Ichan wrote, “Best birthday surprise ever for our mom. Sobrang saya niya, iyak kaming lahat.”
Netizens also couldn’t help but be emotional with the touching reunion.
A netizen wrote, “Nanood lang naman ako pero yung priceless moment sobrang worth it ng smile ni Nanay at iyak.”
Another netizen also commented that the mother seems very nice as she didn’t hesitate to show kindness to the “sales agent.”
The netizen wrote, “Halatang napakabuting tao ni mother. The time na inakbayan siya ng ahente di mo nakitaan ng reklamo or pagiinarte.”
Ichan agreed and said their mother is truly nice to everyone around her. The surprise was a success, and their homecoming became a priceless memory they will all remember!
