Certain videos have the ability to evoke strong emotions within us, as we empathize with the individuals and share in their joy or sorrow. A video shared on Reddit by u/davidwallacecto is a poignant example of this. In the video, a husband is reunited with his wife who has been hospitalized for an extended period of time. Overcome with emotion, the husband is seen crying tears of joy upon realizing that his beloved wife has finally returned home.
The video, which lasts for 42 seconds and was shared on Reddit by u/davidwallacecto, depicts an emotional reunion between a husband and wife after the wife’s extended hospitalization. The wife enters the house and touches her husband’s shoulder, and someone greets her with “Merry Christmas.” She attempts to kiss him on the cheek, but he hesitates as he doesn’t immediately recognize her. After she kisses him, he turns to see her and is taken aback. A voice in the background explains that they had planned the surprise, and the husband begins to cry profusely while she comforts him. The song “Coming Home” by Diddy ft. Skylar Grey plays throughout the video, which has received over 12,000 upvotes. The caption reads, “Husband and wife reunite after wife’s long bout in the hospital.”

This is the way.” Another user, u/double-rainbowland, expressed, “Something about his pure joy made him look like a young man again.” Meanwhile, u/Few_Highway_412 wrote, “Damn that’s beautiful.
