We all could probably do a better job of showing our loved ones how much they mean to us. One Canadian man decided to go the extra mile in order to make one of his beloved mother’s dreams come true.
In the video above, you’ll see Corey Wadden set up the big surprise for his mother. Throughout his life, Wadden’s mother had talked about her dream car, a copper colored 1973 Saab 99 EMS. Two years earlier, his mother lost her job, and Wadden was inspired to begin a project that would help his mother become financially stable and eventually able to retire.
Although he had not yet succeeded in earning enough money to completely support his mother, Wadden was able to obtain his mother’s dream car after a year of searching and saving his dollars.
Those months of hard work culminated into one very special moment. Wadden hands his mother a piece of mail, which actually contains a photo of her dream car and a set of keys. When she opens it, it takes a few seconds for her to realize what it all means.
A giant smile appears on her face as she gets her first glimpse of her brand new car. It’s an incredibly touching moment that neither Wadden or his mother will ever forget.
Leading up to the holiday season, it’s important for surprises like these to remind us that oftentimes, thoughtfulness is the best factor in a gift. While Corey was able to purchase a car, a very grand gesture that most of us wouldn’t be able to pull off, the most impacting moment of it all was that it was the exact one he remembered his mother talking about.
