Updated: Saturday, August 9 2014, 07:26 PM CDT

"Really happy to see her!"

Staff Sergeant Larhonda Hankins anxiously made her way through Palm Beach international airport on Thursday.

She's been serving our country in Afghanistan...

But her mission today was of a different kind and took place at a nearby restaurant.

Lahronda and her mother: "agghh....agh...oh my God!"

It was a homecoming to her mother and family...months in the making.

Soldier's Mom: "I love you so much, I cant believe youre here!

Rhonda Jones didn't expect her daughter until later this year, but Lahronda found out she'd be coming home early and decided to make it a surprise.

"I didn't believe it was real!"

"On a scale of 1 to10, I want to say it was a good 13... she never seen it coming"

The moments were full of smiles, kisses, and photos...

Things any mom would be grateful for.

Soldier's Mom:  "Glad to have her home, this is my baby"
