Have you ever planned a huge surprise for someone? It is such an amazing feeling :). I’ve planned little ones before, but last weekend my hubby and I pulled off the best surprise ever. My oldest son is in his final year at college, and he has built up a fairly sizable debt over the last three years. Unfortunately, we couldn’t afford to pay for his schooling, but we have helped him in any other ways that we could, and honestly, I think it has been a really good learning experience for him not having the money just handed to him.
He has been driving the same older car for the last three years, and it has been a reliable car, but over the last six months or so it has started to fall apart, and the repairs were really adding up. Then about a month ago, our mechanic told us about a car that was for sale. It is older as well, but it’s in really good shape. Bryan will be finishing his electrician’s course in a couple of months and then will be looking for an apprenticeship. We thought that if this car could get him through until he gets settled in an apprenticeship, it would be one thing he wouldn’t have to worry about. So, we bought the car and showed up at his apartment last Saturday to surprise him. The look on his face was priceless, and the hug he gave his dad as I videotaped his reaction brought tears to my eyes. Surprises are the best :).
Now let’s have some blogging fun. It’s Friday and time for the mystery photo game. I think this one is fairly hard but definitely not as hard as last week. Are you feeling smart this week? Let’s see what you’ve got. Ok, ready, set, go….
