No words can ever describe the importance of grandparents in the life of their grandchildren.
“Grandparents, like heroes, are as necessary to a child’s growth as vitamins” Joyce Allston says, and we can’t agree more.
The reasons why these people are “the best kind of grownups” are endless. They are a bit parents, a bit teachers, and a bit friends, and those who got to grow up by their side are the luckiest among us.
A woman named Erica Lusher and her son hadn’t seen her parents in a while. Feeling sad that her boy and her parents were away from one another for some time due to the COVID-19 restrictions, she decided to surprise her parents with a visit. Although it took them 800 miles, the trip was well worth.
While Erica’s mom and dad were having lunch at a local Florida restaurant, she and her son entered the place. The reaction of the grandparents of the boy has been a heart-melting one.
The first to notice them is the grandmother, who is in complete shock.
When the grandpa sees his grandson, his eyes get filled with tears of joy. He embraces the boy with arms wide open and whispers “Buddy” as he’s trying to understand what is going on.
This video of this meeting shows yet again that the bond between grandparents and grandchildren is one of the purest forms of love that have ever existed.
