A mother who is also a Broward College grad received a gift for Mother’s Day.
A single mother like Jennifer Freeman went out to graduate at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale and that same day her day would become very special due to a special surprise.
Her 27-year-old son Marcus Roberts told her she would not be able to attend her graduation due to her job as a U.S. citizen. Coast Guardsman. In fact, he had planned something else.
“It didn’t seem like it was going to happen so she was a little disappointed, but she understood I’m serving. Then in March, the deployment schedule got changed, and I figured rather than me just telling her, I would pop up and surprise her, ”Roberts told the outlet.
With the help of Broward’s staff, he planned to surprise his mother. Appeared at the ceremony wearing his military attire with red and pink roses. Shortly before entering, she asked to take a picture with the college president on stage.
At that moment she saw her son and ran to hug him. He started crying in his arms. According to her “THIS IS THE BEST MOTHER’S DAY EVER. “I THINK THIS IS THE BEST MOTHER’S DAY ANY MOTHER COULD GET.”
The 54-year-old mother had gone through a difficult life. She was forced to leave school in the ninth grade to take care of her sister and brother. Her father was not present in their lives and the mother worked all the time so she became a second mother to them.
“No matter what I achieved in life – I had cars, I had houses, I had children, I educated my children – and I always felt like something was missing. I could tell, that all my life, no matter what I achieved, I felt like something was missing. I knew it was my lack of education, ”she said.
She finally realized her dream. “I want to use my life as a testimony,” Freeman said. They need to know they can still make it. There’s still hope. “Even if you’re a young mother, don’t just think, ‘Oh my life is over.’ Your life is only over if you think it’s over.”
This is the best advice a woman can get on Mother’s Day. Never give up on your dreams.
