“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,” the actor concluded, “Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing mom who will no doubt kill me for posting this crying pic.”
