For most parents, providing for their children is a lifetime commitment. Not only do we do whatever it takes to give our children food, clothing, and shelter – we also strive to give them opportunity.
We often sacrifice our dreams to help make theirs come true.
Well, one pair of siblings decided to repay their dad by helping one of his dreams come true. Hopefully one day our children will follow their fine example!
Coby Oregon and his brother had long known that their father had wanted a blue/green vintage 1966 Ford Mustang. So they saved up and surprised their dad with his dream car.
They even staged an elaborate ruse and reveal which began a simple invite to breakfast. Then by “happenstance” they encountered someone selling the exact model he wants. But in reality the brothers had set the car up on the side of the road complete with a for sale sign and someone to pretend to be the car’s owner.
The boys and the car’s “owner” have some convincing to do to get the father to participate. He’s reluctant, perhaps not wanting to tease himself with a car he can’t have. Unbeknownst to him, he already does have it, and his slow, emotional realization that a long-held dream has come true is a joy to watch.
