Grab a minute to watch this precious video of father and son exuding joy

Cerith Gardiner - published on 07/06/22

If you're feeling down, this video will make you want to celebrate life!

If the world is feeling like a glum place to be these days, it’s a good time to look around for what is beautiful. Thankfully there are some wonderful pearls to be found, like this video of a Portuguese boy playing soccer with his dad.

While father-son soccer moments are always lovely to see, there’s something kind of magical about this video. The little boy in question has special needs and relies on being harnessed to his dad to play the game.

In just a couple of minutes we can see that thanks to the ingenuity of the harness producers (Upsee), the determination of the dad to involve his son in a kick-about, and the child’s desire to be included in common childhood activities, life is truly beautiful.

It’s that reminder we all need from time to time, to just whoop for joy at all the wonderful things we are able to do!
