In a heartwarming video shared online, the visibly emotional man rushes to hug his mom who was seated on a sofa near him.
To be loved is to be deeply understood. One of the most beautiful ways to show love to someone can be by celebrating and cherishing their core memories. It can make our beloved ones feel deeply loved and bring us even closer to them. A similar thing happened to a Reddit user, who took to Made Me Smile subreddit section and wrote, "Reliving that childhood high." They also wrote, "When your husband tells you a core memory of his mom getting him a batman toy as a kid, so you tell your MIL and she finds an unopened original to gift it to him again for his bday." In the video, the man is seen opening his gift and he sees a box of Batman toys. Then, he rushes to hug his mom who was seated on a sofa near him. The video received more than 6,000 upvotes.
The comments of people followed quickly on the adorable video as well. u/Open_Dragonfruit_304 wrote, "I love love LOVE the pause and start to cry moment he has when he rips open the top and catches a glimpse of what’s inside." u/reydolith wrote, "Right? Such an ingrained core memory he remembers the side of the box. So many feelings."
While u/BRAINFORCE22 wrote, "There’s so much great stuff in this video. It’s all so thoughtful and sweet. I personally love the kid staring outside haha." u/DodgyRogue wrote, "I’m not crying! You’re crying!" u/BalognaPonyParty wrote, "that pull up and hug."
