This Christmas gathering in the featured video below brought tears to our eyes as well. With their friends, the family is gathered in the living room for the tradition of gift-giving on Christmas day. But this particular Christmas, a little boy is getting more than he bargained for.
When the boy’s close friend Lisa hands him his present, he least expected what was inside the bag. The boy’s mom, who was behind the camera, is even heard saying that she’s going to cry. Perhaps they already knew what was inside the bag, except for the little boy.
The boy opened the present and was surprised to see a neatly folded blanket—but it wasn’t just any blanket. Printed on one side were pictures of the boy and his late dog, Gordon. You see, the little boy loved his dog Gordon very much, but he lost his best friend when Gordon passed the rainbow bridge. The boy is seen fighting off tears as he unfolds the blanket to see the pictures.
Eventually, he could no longer hold back his tears as he remembers his lost friend, Gordon. Rest assured, the boy’s Christmas wasn’t all that sad. He was merely crying tears of longing as he reminisced the pictures on the blanket. His good friend Lisa even consoled him by giving him a big hug. We’re sure he’ll cherish the blanket as he grows up.
