In today’s fast-moving society, we often forget the simple things in life. For example, spending a quiet afternoon with a loved one. We are often so busy with our lives that giving someone our undivided attention is often overlooked for the sake of keeping up with our news feeds on our cell phones or other daily tasks.
In the following video, an elderly father asks his son some questions while both are sitting together outside; however, his son seems more preoccupied with his newspaper. After his son yells at him out of frustration, the elderly father briefly leaves. When he comes back, his actions will move you to tears.
Watch this short film entitled, ‘What is that?’…
I lost my father several years ago and would give anything to have an opportunity to sit down with him on a bench and have a conversation again. If you are lucky enough to have your father and mother in your life, give them your undivided attention because those small moments can mean so much.
Please share how this elderly father shared a life lesson with his son with your friends and family.
