As hopeless as the world seems these days, it's now more important than ever to focus on moments that represent everything that's good about humankind.
Although it was under dire circumstances that the world had to adopt social distancing as a new way of life, the birth of this new reality has given rise to a number of heartwarming stories of support and love. With a fast-spreading invisible virus threatening everything that we hold dear, humankind has come together in inspiring fashion to help each other through the pandemic. From medical professionals risking their lives to treat those infected to neighbors watching out for each other to the kind-hearted going out of their way to get supplies to those in need, even these past few weeks of global despair have seen beacons of light and hope shining through.
One such heartwarming moment was shared online by the granddaughter of possibly the cutest couple alive today. According to E! Online, Yael Shapira Avraham took to Facebook earlier this week to share her adorable 92-year-old grandfather coloring his wife's grey hair to ensure that her beauty game stays on point. The couple seems to have set up their makeshift hairdressing station in their kitchen given the need to follow social distancing during this global pandemic that has forced all non-essential businesses to close their doors.
"These are my grandparents 92 years old (may we be healthy)," Avraham reportedly captioned the photograph. "In every situation, my grandfather is worried that my grandmother will feel well-groomed. You don't see things like this every day." It took no time for the heartwarming snap to go viral on social media with netizens swooning over the couple and the incredible chemistry they clearly share even at this age. The image was also shared on Instagram by Good News Movement where Sarah Johnson commented: Love this! My Grandfather started doing Grandmother’s hair when she slipped away from us to Alzheimer’s. True love.
Another Instagram user Jo Molina Cabrera commented: Omg. True love that lasts forever. In good and in bad. Emme Skoien wrote: Reminds me of my parents. My dad colored my mom's hair for her when she got Parkinson's. Katy Green shared a similar story, writing: My 92-year-old grandpa has been painting my 90-year-old grandmother’s toenails for years because she has macular degeneration and can’t see to do it herself. American model Amber Lancaster commented: They don’t make them like this anymore. A user named Rox shared her grandparents' story, writing: When my grandmother lost her sight my grandfather would do her makeup for her every morning because he knew how much it meant to her to always look her best. My Nono and Bumpa. Miss them every single day.
