Editor’s note. The following commentary on “Ryan’s unforgettable Mother’s Day delivery to Mom” appeared on the blog Saynsumthn authored by Carole Novielli.
A Teleflora ad on YouTube which emphasizes the importance of mothers has a beautiful pro-life message.
The ad is emotional and is created to appear as a true story.
In the video a son sends his mother a video message filled with accolades of all the sacrifices his mother made for him.
“I didn’t know how much you sacrificed until I was an adult,” the adult son says.
“At college, I learned that you had a dream to become a professional athlete and then you got pregnant with me and you had to choose. You knew you couldn’t do both and you gave it up to raise me. To raise me the best way you knew how,” he says.
“I realize how hard it was, and thank you very much,” he adds.
“Because of you I stand here today, a father, a husband, a Navy commander. It’s because of you – you showed me how to work and not quit and have honor and have integrity. I’ve achieved all these things because the foundation you laid and the example that you lead,” he says.
“Above all mom, I hope when you look at me, you see the good man that you wanted your little boy to be. I’m proud to call you my mother, I’m proud to be your son. You made me the man that I am today. I love you with all my heart”
