All parents want and pray for their kids to grow up to be successful, self-assured, compassionate, and most of all, happy.
A well-known tale masterfully conveys the idea of a parent giving up important things so their kid can achieve great things.
The story, which was originally posted on Reddit by user One Percentile, revolves around a mother who supposedly spent thirty years working as a maid to pay for her son’s education.
He made the difficult decision to pursue his dream of becoming a pilot, as everyone knows, but sometimes having the resources to pursue a goal can make all the difference in the world.
Either way, this mom went above and above to make sure her son could finish his extensive schooling and eventually obtain his wings.
Thankfully, he succeeded in doing so.
A video showing the pilot’s mother boarding an aircraft and seeing her son for the first time in his pilot’s uniform was posted after the previously mentioned Reddit post.
As soon as the unwary woman gets on the aircraft, the air hostess abruptly pulls back the curtains to reveal the pilot standing in front of his mother holding a bouquet of flowers.
Needless to say, the sequence makes people cry, and those who have watched it online seem to appreciate its emotional impact. The video has about 79,000 likes at the time this article was written.
One Reddit user wrote, “I hope she got ALL of the in-flight champagne!”
“Absolutely the sweetest thing,” another added. “The expressions on their faces say it all.”
“This is the most wholesome video I’ve seen all week!” a third shared.
“I can imagine what a proud mother she is to see the result of all her sacrifices in her son,” said another.
