I am sure when Suzanne Aguilar posted a genuine family moment, she never expected it to take the internet by storm. She just wanted to share a surprise for her daughter with family and friends. But, social media was not having it. The moment was just too special and precious not to go viral.
Suzanne recorded it all as her mom gave her children small gifts. A $5 bill for one, then some cash for another, but when the last granddaughter stepped forward she was met with a gift she always wanted; a bible of her own. The joy of this child brought to memory my first Bible from my childhood confirmation and first communion. It was all white with a personal message written on the first page. I still have that bible and the memory of that moment, as this child will always have. This also serves as a reminder to all of the love, sacrifice, and more the book represents. The pure love for God’s word this child expressed is infectious. I admit to my waterworks. Will you?
