The Rock’s Sappy Instagram Post Owned Mother’s Day
Well, it’s official: The Rock is the greatest.
The Rock posted this amazingly moving photo of his mother on Instagram, putting everyone else’s Mother’s Day to shame. Along with the photo, he passed along a story about how poor he and his mom used to be and how far they came.
So, while you’re busy patting yourself on the back that you bought your mom gas station quality roses, read this and be reminded that The Rock is pretty much the best son going. Sorry, but it’s true.
He got his mom on a private plane where she could reminisce and shake her head in disbelief about how good life turned out. Not too shabby.
Cool Mother's Day story.. early am flight and I'm sittin' across from my mom when out of the blue she looks around the plane, then looks at me and says "Son, I can't believe the life I have.. grandma and grandpa would be so proud." I asked her, "Are you happy ma?". Just then the flight attendant placed my moms breakfast down on the table and my mom said to me, "Am I happy?.. I used to worry about how I was going to buy groceries for us and now I just had my breakfast placed down in front of me". She bursts into tears and says "Yes, son I couldn't be happier". This is the woman who when I was 14yrs old we were evicted out of our apartment in Hawaii 'cause we couldn't afford the $180 per week rent. At this moment Im shaking my head and smiling quietly (as my mom blows her nose;) 'cause she just told me she's happy. And y'all know when our parents tell us they're happy, its so satisfying for us, 'cause it means we've done a good job for them as their kids. Happy Mother's Day to all the deserving amazing mamas out there. And Happy Mother's Day to my amazing mom who will no doubt kill me for posting this crying pic. #EnjoyBreakfastMom #GratefulTears #TryNotCryInTheEggs
