Eric Stokes: Young man gifts grandma dream house after signing NFL contract
In many cases, those dreams are never achieved as the realities of life hit and the big money becomes elusive.
There, however, are cases when hard work and fate join hands at the opportune time to make this possible.
That was the case with Atlanta's former UGA star Eric Stokes who recently bought a dream house for his grandmother.
In a post shared on his Instagram account, Stokes revealed that moving his granny from the project houses she has lived in for over three decades.
When she signed a contract with NFL’s Green Bay Packers, he found it prudent to fulfil the promise he made since he was 14 years old.
"Since I’ve been 14 years old I promised my grandma I'd get her out of the projects, where she’s lived for over 30 years, and into her dream home. Words can’t describe how good it feels to finally check this off the list! Forever love grandma," he wrote.
Accompanying the post was a video that captures the whole surprise, from Stokes preparing to take his grandma over to the emotional moment she is informed the house is hers.
"First and foremost, I'm gonna get my grandma a crib. She thinks it's off the market, but she doesn't know that I already did everything and closed the deal," he said on video while driving to meet her.
Part of the surprise was to show the old lady several houses as if they were window shopping, then bring her back to the dream house where the keys were presented to her. Throughout the surprise, Stokes himself was evidently anxious as he struggled to compose himself so as not to blow his cover.
"I know she figured it out. That was so bad at acting. I need to take acting classes," he said.
Finally, after taking a walk through the house, Stokes's grandma was let in on the surprise as she emotionally jumped into his arms.
