Soldier Surprises Unsuspecting Mom After Being Away For 10 Months

Soldier Surprises Unsuspecting Mom After Being Away For 10 Months

No matter how much time passes, a mother could never forget her child’s voice, which is why one Tennessee mom froze when she heard her waiter ask her if she’d like more coffee.

Beth Paul was dining at a LongHorn Steakhouse in Afton, Tennessee with friends and family, and couldn’t understand what was happening when she thought she heard her son, an Infantryman in the U.S. Army who has been deployed for the last 10 months, right behind her.

Beth knew that was impossible since her son Joshua Paul had been deployed for almost a year. However, when she spun around to see her ‘waiter’ she realized she wasn’t hearing things.

Joshua had been planning the big surprise for weeks, and even reached out to the local news station to capture the emotional surprise. “I’m on top of the world. My heart is just burning,” Beth said. “I’m just on top of the world. What a surprise. I had no idea.”

“It’s been so long since I got to see him and just hug him. I’ve just been missing him really bad here lately,” Beth said.
