Part of me feels bad for sharing this because I know it will make you cry (it made me cry, I will admit it) but there is also something so pure and beautiful about it, too, and people need to see that.
In this case, one very awesome Dad made his son a stuffed monkey at Build-a-Bear and put in a prerecorded message from his late wife to his son, telling him how much she loves him and how proud she is of him. Someone give this Dad a medal. Really, this is how you parent.
And then when the emotion of the moment hits the room, you just get swept up in it, too.
Warning: incoming feels….
He holds the bear like a child as soon as he hears his mother’s voice, most likely the same way she once held him.
Be right back, crying forever.
