Who says men aren’t persistent? This story sure proves them wrong. Bryan Martin surprised his high school senior daughter with a graduation gift that took 13 years to make!

Earlier this month 13-years-ago Martin bought a gift that he managed to keep a secret from his daughter. Until the day she walked across the stage at her high school graduation! After the ceremony Martin gave Brenna a copy of ‘Oh The Places You’ll Go’ by Dr. Seuss, inside however, Martin had all of Brenna teachers, including kindergarten teachers write a message to her!

Brenna was so touched by this gift that she posted pictures and a message to her dad on Reddit.com where she said this book was ‘truly priceless.’

Martin responded to her message by saying: “... she has always been the light of my life. Doing this was just a small way of letting her know."

‘Today is your day – you are off to great places. You’re off and away!’ – Dr. Seuss.

What did you give the high school seniors in your life this year?
