Two brothers saved for years to buy their mom a very special Christmas present this year: her dream car.
Daniel Knust of Wollongong, Australia, just south of Sydney, posted a video of the moment he and his brother, Jason, presented their mom, Carol, with a BMW 3 Series.
“Showing gratitude to our beautiful Mum who’s worked so hard to give us everything in life,” he wrote on Instagram. “Compared to the sacrifices she has made for us over the years, this is nothing.”
Showing gratitude to our beautiful Mum who’s worked so hard to give us everything in life. Compared to the sacrifices she has made for us over the years, this is nothing. A little gift to show her how much we appreciate everything she’s done for Jason and I. I’ve wanted to do this for 10 years, and today a long term dream came true. Hard work pays off, and that’s something our Mum taught us from a very young age that we’ll never forget. #grateful #family @takeaphotoitwilllastlonger.gif @natgerada @mrs_knuts
Knust, 30, told TODAY the surprise had been in the works for years.
“My mother first said about 10 years ago that she wanted a BMW, and we never forgot that,” he said. “We said that one day we would get her one and we’ve been saving up for it.”
He and his older brother saved for about five years before they bought the car.
“We put aside a little each week knowing one day we would be able to get her (the car),” Knust said.
