At Thanksgiving, my mother said that her hearing aid was dead, and all she wanted for Christmas was a new hearing aid. She said she could get a reconditioned one for about $600. Since I won a little money from a World Series board I was on, I decided to surprise her Saturday with the $600. I just can't understand women! She started crying. Then my wife started crying. Boy, some people just can't receive a little gift without getting a little emotional.
Tears of joy, tears of relief, tears of love, tears of appreciation for your gesture.
Eddie , your sacrifice and generosity are truly what the holiday spirit are all about.
May your last dollar in the gambling budget be returned to you a thousand fold.
I noticed, you forgot to mention, that the reason she needs the hearing device is because you played that loud music all the time.
Enjoy, even the crying, Ed. I would give anything to hear my Mom talk, laugh, or even cry one more time.
Jason If a grin is transmittable, and laughing is contagious, here’s hoping for an epidemic!

You truly are special and your mom knew that. (and if she didn't, she knows now.) When she gets the new hearing aid, be sure to TELL her you love her, too. (She knows this already, but tell her just the same.) Fantastic christmas gift!!
You made this mom cry too. u r a good son... i have 4 kids who would all do the same.. Not bragging jsut stating a fact. It makes us moms feel a warm feeling of satisfaction knowing we ahd something to do with the raising of a good kid turned adult. You should be so proud of yourself.... She is of u i know......
Good job!! Those are the best tears to see from a mom. She knows she raised you right!! It made her heart thump, and she was speechless from your thoughtfulness.The tears said it all! Lynne
You already gambled on the gift and you came out a winner in your mother's eyes and it doesn't get better than that. Your mother probably will not get any better gift than that. I'll also bet that her reaction was better than the joy of the slots!
