“To My Son.” Dad’s Special Christmas Present Has Internet In Tears.

Last week on Christmas, people around the world enjoyed opening gifts, but one young man received a present that day that was especially meaningful… a wallet from his dad:


“To My Son,” reads the wallet’s inscription. “Wherever your journey in life may take you I pray that you will always be safe. Enjoy the ride and never forget your way back home. I can’t promise to be here for the rest of your life but I can promise to love you for the rest of mine. Love you. Dad”

This young man may have asked for an Amazon Echo or Nintendo Switch for Christmas, but what he got instead was a gift he will always treasure and a message he’ll never forget.
