While it’s always nice to receive an expensive gift, what really matters is the thought behind it. Several months ago, an Oklahoma mom named Carmen got a second job so she could give her son the ultimate 16th birthday present: a car!
On the big day, she was finally able to surprise him and captured his wonderful reaction on video. While he remains calm when he sees the white car with a bright red bow on it, you can tell he’s working hard to keep his emotions in check. But then he slips behind the wheel, and Carmen delivers the real present: heartfelt praise for who he is!
“I’m so proud of you,” she tells him as he fights back tears. “You a good boy. You make good grades, you don’t give me no trouble, you don’t run the streets, and you make me proud. You hear me?”
Great job, Mom! See his sweet reaction to this unforgettable birthday present in the video below, and share this story to spread the love.
