It’s sometimes hard to define a good person. Is it what’s in their heart? Their actions? Were they born to be a good person? and, usually, good people are NOT that hard to find.
Way back in 1976, Tom sold his awesome sports car to take care of something quite a bit more important. He was preparing to propose to a woman who already had two young kids, and he really needed that money from his car to take care of them. Fortunately, the woman said Yes to his proposal and they were married. Not too long after, they adopted two more children – a boy and a girl… and their family was complete.
He was easily the best dad in the world, according to all the children, and they all knew the sacrifice he made to marry their mother and raise four other hungry mouths in the house. So, 40 years later, one of their daughters and her husband wanted to surprise Tom with something pretty darned nice…. a car just like the one he sold to take care of all of them.
It was a 1973 Corvette Stingray. Yeah…. VERY nice car. So as his family nonchalantly took a stroll with him in a Texas parking lot, a dark green Stingray caught his eye, and he quickly pointed out to his wife that that looked exactly like the car he sold off so many years ago…. exact same color and all. So family members started telling him they wanted to see it, and they all walked closer and closer to it.
Tom walked around it and admired its sheer beauty, and it brought back such good memories for him. And then, his daughter called him over to the back of the car and presented him with the keys to it. And he said, “What is this?” And his daughter smiled and pointed to the license plate on the car. It had the letters YDHT on it, and she smiled and said “You didn’t have to,” referring to the sacrifice he made to take care of his wife and children.
She then told Tom that the car was his. Well Emotions took over and Tom started crying, hugging his daughter as she told him that she loved him. Then Tom took it for a test drive in the lot, with his daughter right in the seat next to him.
