Another heartwarming moment was when a father, who had been colorblind his whole life, received a birthday gift from his children.

The kids wanted him to see the world the way normal people do, so on his 66th birthday, they decided to surprise him with a pair of EnChroma glasses.

These special type of glasses allows colorblind people to see the world in colors the same way normal people do.

The father was unable to hold back his tears the first time he put the glasses on.

Indeed, the best gifts are those given out of pure love.
