If ever there was a supermom, Jarita Hall is it.
She raised 5 kids and a grandchild entirely on her own, setting her dreams to the side until her job was done. After all of her kids left the house, Hall decided to return to law school and pursue the degree she’d always wanted… and now at 64-years-old, she’s done just that.
To commemorate Hall’s determination and to honor her sacrifice, all 6 of the kids that Hall raised decided to give their momma a day to remember at her graduation on May 22nd.
Hall walked from the auditorium to see all of her family outside crowded around a brand new BMW – her dream car. Unable to believe that the car might be for her, Hall joked that ‘someone else’ must be getting a car for graduation.
All smiles, Hall posed in front of the BMW for kicks and a picture… but then her daughter asked one important question.
“Mom! Are you good at baseball?” Lori Hall asked. Mom said through her smile, ‘BASEBALL?’
Then Lori tossed her the keys, and what happened next is seriously beautiful.
Check out the moment in the video below! We’re proud of you Jarita!
