Prom is a highlight of every teen's life. The dress, the corsage, the date — but sometimes it's the little things, like walking or dancing, that matter the most during major milestones and are often taken for granting.
A girl name Morgan has everyone weeping over her strength and perseverance with a video that shows her surprising her prom date with her ability to walk on her own. Morgan has been using crutches for the last 10 month as she recovers from surgery, and she greets her date standing up straight on her own. Now, this might seem like totally normal to most people, but Morgan has spent most of the past year dependent on crutches — and her date has the best reaction.
She takes a few a few steps towards him, and you can almost see the moment his brain breaks when he realizes what's happening:
After not being able to walk with my own two legs for 10 months... i surprised my prom date with this💛✨ pic.twitter.com/rKLoCoxZRL— MoMo (@aeonianlife) April 28, 2018
Not a dry eye in the house.
Look at these two:

Morgan has gone semi-viral before with her story of meeting "guardian angels" who comforted her after her surgery and subsequent physical therapy. Physical therapy can be very grueling. After one session, Morgan writes she went to get food with her mom and met two strangers who prayed over her. She swears it was great and not creepy at all!
so my mema took me to therapy today and usually we go straight home afterwards but we were hungry so we went to bill millers and so we get our food and sit down and probably 15 or 20 minuets later this nice couple comes over and the woman is so beautiful and the man seemed so— MoMo (@aeonianlife) February 26, 2018
kind and sincere. she asked us if she can talk to us about something and my mema says, "well, it depends." and i laugh and say, "of course!" and she takes a seat next to me and the man sits across from me and she starts telling me how she feels drawn to me and she saw me get out— MoMo (@aeonianlife) February 26, 2018
of the car with my walker outside before we car in the restaurant. She asks what happened and i told her that surgery took a wrong turn and that i was diagnosed with conversion disorder and she tells me that she has this feeling that she knows how i am feeling about what's going— MoMo (@aeonianlife) February 26, 2018
on, and i begin to cry. no one has ever told me that and she looks at me and she has tears in her eyes. She takes a hold of my hand, and asks me if her and the man could pray for me. i said, "yes, please!" and i was so overwhelmed with joy thinking there are some incredible— MoMo (@aeonianlife) February 26, 2018
people in this world and i was crying and was just so excited that God was working through these people. so they placed their hands on my legs and on my head and said a beautiful prayer and when they were done, i asked if i can give them a hug and they felt so warm and i was so— MoMo (@aeonianlife) February 26, 2018
comforted with their kindness i felt i was hugging angels. it sounds absolutely insane, i know, but i have NEVER felt so safe in my life. she said her name was Michelle and his name was John. They left and i started bawling... in the middle of freaking bill millers but i didn't— MoMo (@aeonianlife) February 26, 2018
care one bit because I think i had just met my guardian angels in person. 💛— MoMo (@aeonianlife) February 26, 2018
Morgan obviously found comfort from the encounter, and she's kept going. What she did on prom night was super hard and must have required a lot of work. But her night wasn't over—she was also awarded Prom Queen:
I just want everyone to see how beautiful she is 💕💕💕 pic.twitter.com/iXKHLQByhY— Charly (@charlysamone) April 28, 2018
Everyone loves Morgan's story and her date's delayed reaction to what he's seeing when the door opens:
The fact her beauty stunned him wayyy before he even realized she was waking is so cute! As if he was seeing her for the first time 😍 https://t.co/7vSdhOpNQ4— ErickaLynn (@missamerickaa) April 29, 2018
I love the way it took him like 10 seconds to properly comprehend what was going on.— § (@Reinaknows) April 28, 2018

And a few people are inspired by her recovery because they're doing the same thing:
I cried. I am so so proud that you were able to accomplish this! My situation is definitely not comparable to yours, but I cant wait until mt husband sees how much progress I've made with my own recovery. YOU ARE SO STRONG AND YOU JUST MOTIVATED ME EVEN MORE! 💚— NINA (@allthatjaz_) April 28, 2018
i believe in you gorgeous! God is rooting for you and will never give up on you! Keep your heart strong and your head up! you got this! 💛— MoMo (@aeonianlife) April 28, 2018
I think we're all crying now.
