What did you do with your first paycheck? You finally had money of your own, you felt like you can do anything you want. But 21-year-old Pavin Smith used his to pay off a mortgage. His parents’ mortgage.
In this year’s baseball drafts, Pavin Smith was the seventh overall pick. He was signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and that included a rather large bonus of 5 million dollars! With that kind of money, Pavin could have bought himself a fancy house, a few cars, and still had money leftover.
Instead, Pavin thought his money could go to a better use. The first baseman decided to payoff the rest of his parents’ mortgage. He wrote a heartwarming note to his parents, explaining that this was their Christmas present, and decided to film their reaction!
In the note Pavin mentioned, “Thank you for raising me in a great home filled with love! Because of all the sacrifices you made for me, I want our family home to be yours!”
Pavin said that though his gift was enormous, it doesn’t even begin to touch what his parents had given him. Pavin is one dedicated son!
Christmas is a time for giving. Pavin’s parents gave him a childhood filled with love and support, and in turn he made sure that their home stayed theirs forever! It makes you wonder what Christmas gift Pavin will come up with next year.
