A social media video captures a gentle family moment and the immense love between grandfather and grandson.
The love of a father for his son is wonderful. A mother’s love has no equal. But the love of grandparents is of another dimension. Many elderly people recognize that in their life they would like to have displayed their love with greater affection: when they were raising their children, they were always in a rush, sometimes arguing, possibly too rigorous or too lax in disciplining their kids. But now, as grandparents, everything is different: they always have time for their grandchildren, and often they would like to spend even more time with them than they do.
A few weeks ago, a video appeared on social media that could not better reflect this tenderness. It shows a grandfather singing to his little grandson, Joseph, a child with Down syndrome. They’re celebrating his birthday, and from the ambient light it looks like the video was recorded in the middle of the afternoon.
