One of the hardest parts of life is being separated from our loved ones. Even if we move away from family by choice, for work or marriage or whatever else, being separated from parents and siblings can be incredibly difficult. Even fully-grown adults can be reduced to puddles of tears when reunited with family who lives far away, as in this video from @grillilngaham. It's a tradition in her family, she explains, for them to surprise each other on their birthdays. So when she went to the airport on her birthday (it's not clear who she thought she was picking up) and her dad came around to the driver's side window...well, it was a pretty emotional reunion.

Just watching this father/daughter moment is enough to make you start crying. That feeling of seeing someone again after so long can be so intense. Sometimes you don't even realize how much you missed somebody until you see them again. When this woman saw her dad, it's almost as if all the memories of missing him came back to her at once and made her so grateful to have her dad by her side again. This will definitely go down in history as one of her best birthdays ever.
