Woman's Reaction to Best Friend Surprising Her at the Airport After 5 Years Apart Is Just the Best

What would we do without our best friends? Well, we suppose life would be dull and boring! No matter how far the distance apart or the time that passes between visits, it's so great when you can just pick up right where you left off. 

We love this video from TikTok creator @shel_sunshine, whose heartfelt reunion with her childhood best friend was caught on camera at the airport. The best part is that the whole thing was a huge surprise, as she thought she was there to pick up one of her girlfriends instead. Wait until you see her reaction. Her face is just the BEST. Get the tissues ready! 

OMG! It's clear that she had absolutely NO idea this was happening. People who watched the clip are just so touched. "She left her whole life on the floor to come hug you. If that isn’t love, I don’t know what is," writes TikTok viewer @jgraham765. We agree. After all, it takes something amazing for anyone to leave their phone on the floor!

 Another sweet comment from @lilmama_04201 said, "not me just feeling that hug like it was the first time....love hugs like that." It was definitely full of pure love. Commenter @callmetacobellehope added, "I hope someday I'll have a friendship that feels like this." It truly is a gift that can't be put into words. 

Friendship comes in all forms, and it's a love like no other, and it's clear that these two had quite a bit of catching up to do. We'd love to see some footage of them reminiscing about old times, and we hope they had a blast!
