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?”
