“Hey, Mrs. Eidson. It’s Tim Tebow. I wanted to make this video and to say happy birthday,” Tebow said on the video. “I know last Tuesday you turned 105 years old and that is so incredible.

“I also know we have a lot in common. I know that you have five children, and I’m the baby of five, so we have that in common, and I know that you were a nurse, and you love helping people and that’s also what I feel called to do. But most importantly, I know that you love the Lord, which is most important.”
