Coffee with Collin: Someone Special…

2:01 PM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Today’s Coffee with Collin episode is actually not going to cover any type of frugal topic. Instead, I will be talking about someone who is very special to me. Please note that when I try and talk about this wonderful person, I always seem to get emotional and have a very hard time holding back my tears. I am definitely a little a lot on the sensitive side.

**If you can’t see the video, go here to watch it.

    Collin! You are so great! I love your videos and I thought the crying was very sweet! I also cry at certain subjects….baby animals like bunnies and kittens, weddings, dancing groups with crowds cheering to name a few…cry like a baby!! What is that with women>?! Anyways, you are great!!! Thanks for sharing your world with us!

  • Donna says:

    What a beautiful video! I, too, started to cry!! Great tribute. Thank you for sharing :-)

    That is such a thoughtful video, u made me cry. I think its adorable how u made this video for ur mom. I think its easy sometimes to just think our parents are always going to be with us, I think its important to let them know how much they mean to us. Without them we wouldnt be here. U did such a great job of letting her know how much u love and appreciate her.
    Thanks for all of u hard work and I am glad u had a relaxing Mothers Day.

    Your mom is so lucky to have you as a daughter! I really appreciated the time you took to make this video (and all of them for that matter) and I love that fact that you werent embarassed to put the crying parts in, because that really made the video =]

  • Marcia says:

    Collin, I was very touched watching your tribute to your mother. It brought tears to my eyes watching the genuine emotion you expressed. I lost my mother 11 years ago and I miss her more with each passing year recognizing how much I am unable to share with her. It is wonderful that you are letting your mother know now of your love. I can only imagine how touched she is if we as strangers are. Thank you for sharing this with us all.

    Your so cute, I love it! I was crying and laughing with you, Happy Blated Mothers day!

  • Michelle says:

    Collin, that was a beautiful video tribute to your mother. I was emotional too watching it. I know what you mean by being sensitive. I cry all the time when I talk about my mom. She is the best too!! I am very emotional and whenever I start to cry about something my husband just looks at me like “oh no here she goes again”!! Anyways, you did a great job and it is clear that you have an awesome mom and she did a great job raising you! You are a wonderful person and it sounds like a lot like your mom. Happy Belated Mother’s day to you :)
