‘Mom I bought you a car.’ I laughed and told him, ‘Ya right!’ He said, ‘No mom, I’m serious. I bought you a car. Come on, we have to go.’ I’m confused and skeptical. ‘Go where?’ ‘With this lady.’

“I have no words right now that can express how I am feeling at this moment. I’m in complete shock … The last couple weeks have literally been hell filled with so many tears, anger, confusion and heart ache. Today I got the shock of my life… 

As some of you may know my son William, who is a lawn mowing, yard cleaning, money making machine. Well my son had a job today that he had to go do and so I allowed him to go assuming it was like any other time. Well this time was different. Very different.

William came home and said, ‘Mom I bought you a car’

I of course laughed and told him ‘Ya, right!’

He said, ‘No mom I’m so serious I bought you a car. Come on we have to go.’

I’m at this point confused and skeptical and I said, ‘Go where?’

He said, ‘With this lady.’ 

And much to my surprise I go in my front yard and OMG there is a woman standing there and as William said she was giving us a ride.

William jumps in the car so I’m like ok?? This is some kind of joke right. No one speaks really…. 
So… as I’m still thinking at this point still a joke. We pull up to this house and

William says, ’Mom that’s your car.’

I completely lost it. I started balling my eyes out… I am speechless my 13-year-old son bought me a car.

He did some work for this woman and that was his payment that he worked out with her. And here I thought it was a joke… Nope I was handed the keys and paperwork to the car and I’m freaking out but so in shock like OMG this is happening right now. So, we got into the car it started right up and off we went. 

I am so proud of my son. He is such a good kid. He may have his days but OMG what 13-year-old kid do you know that buys his mom a car… William I love you son and thank you. You have such a big heart and I love you.”
