3 Different Reactions To Mom’s Homecoming

The footage presented to you today is about an army mom that has come back from her latest deployment. She says her kids are little superheroes because first of all they spend a lot of time away from their mother, the deployment she just finished was over 9 months long. She also said that they are resilient, they behave at home while she serves. The first video presented to you takes place in a high school, one student has prepared a very good surprise for her classmate. She is doing an interview, which is probably the diversion for the surprise. Her classmate then tells her that she can thank the person standing behind her for her service. The girl turns around very fast and sees her mother waiting with her arms open. She jumps onto her other for one of the longest hug she ever gave. The mom is now alone on camera giving a little interview, explaining what she does while she is deployed and she deals with being away from her kids. She also tells good things about them. They are a really close family. The second reunion during the video is with the youngest kid of our army mom. She hid into her class before the start of the day and when the little girl enters the room, her classmates are aware of the surprise and all come together to yell a “Congratulations!” The little girl spots her mother at the back of the class and runs towards her Just like her older sibling she goes for a really long and tight hug with her mother. Now comes the time to surprise her oldest child, her son. She went to the gym of the high school to surprise her son. He was doing an exercise in the gym with a blindfold. That way he was not aware of the presence of his mom. He finished the exercise and his teacher told him to take off his blindfold. He sees his mom a couples inches away from him but doesn’t react at all. His mom gave him a little hug and asked him what was happening. He replied that he felt embarrassed, that a lot of girls were watching him in that gym. His mom couldn't believe his reaction but at the end of the day he is very happy that his mom his back at home with him and his two sisters.

Adorable Cat Ready To Give You Motivation

In this video, Rumble viewers are introduced to a kitten named Olive. As the video continues, words appear on the screen, intended to promote contemplation and reflection. As viewers, what immediately catches our eye is the adorable face of a kitten. We are spellbound, wondering what will happen next, as this focus seems initially too simple for a video. However, our eyes are drawn to a crooked mouth, which leaves us wondering if the lip is simply stuck in the teeth, and perhaps the kittenish grin will soon straighten out. Then the text on the video draws our vision up to meet the gaze of the kitten once more, and we realize that the kitten’s eyes appear to be crossed-eyed in focus. The words, “I can see totally fine” appear on the screen and we grin, suspecting cute sarcasm is at play. As the kitten continues to stare back at us, we begin to wonder if this kitten is perhaps injured or born with a disability, and our intrigue grows exponentially. Then our suspicions are confirmed when the video text states, “I especially see the beauty in YOU, hooman.” The intentionally misspelling and statement subject matter make us smile and welcome a heart-warming message, delivered via the face of this adorable pet. Additional text appears on the screen, inviting and urging us to get out and succeed. We are invited to “chase the ball of yarn.” At this point, our minds shift, and we begin to wonder, “What is my ball of yarn?” Is the ball of yarn a dream we have let slip? Is the ball of yarn our professional success that waits if we will simply overcome fear and believe in ourselves? Is the ball of yarn that inner joy that comes from appropriate work-life balance, including literal play and recreation opportunities that we are missing in lieu of other pressures? Olive inspires us “catch our mouse.” What is that mouse for each of us? Perhaps we can all learn a lesson from our feline companions. Cats hunt – they focus, and stalk, and work patiently to achieve their focus and catch their prey. They know when to listen, and when to wait. They know when to run, and when to jump. Cats know when to pause, take in the view, and relax. And cats know how to play . Wholesome recreation is healthy, and all of us need to smile.
