A loving daughter decided to give her mom the gift of a lifetime. Sabrina Long is the mother of three children.
Her oldest daughter, Shalanda Thurmond, wanted to do something special for Sabrina’s 51st birthday. The 30-year-old gifted her mom a heartfelt card, along with a box that had a surprise inside.
“Mom, you’ll always be so important and special,” the card read. In the video provided to Inside Edition by T&T Creative Media, you can see Sabrina had tears in her eyes as she read the heartfelt message. When she got to the end of the card, it read, “I need you to pull something out of this box.”
Taped to the bottom of the card was a string. As Sabrina pulled, one $5 bill after another came out. She kept pulling, and $10 and $20 bills began making their way out of the box as family and friends cheered. In total, there was $3,000 in the box. Shalanda saw it as a thank you to a mom who had done so much.
Shalanda recalled how, when she and her siblings were kids, her mother would find a way for the family to get by, even when Sabrina had only $20 to her name. Now Shalanda hopes her mom will spend this money on something nice for herself. “I want her to be able to get whatever she wants with that money,” the proud daughter said of her wonderful mom.
