With all the sad, maddening and terrible news on TV and online, we find ourselves needing a little respite from the world’s woes and problems. We found it in three stories making the social media rounds this week. They warmed our hearts, made us shed a few tears, and made us happy they went viral.
1. This working mom who took multitasking to a whole new level
For a throwback Thursday post, artist Hein Koh uploaded a photo of herself breastfeeding back in September 2015. But, as you can see above, she clearly was a picture of a master multitasker. She was breastfeeding her twins, one on each breast, while sitting up in bed working on her laptop! How impressive is that?
“Becoming a #mom (of twins no less) has personally helped me become a better #artist - I learned to be extremely efficient with my time, prioritize what's important and let go of the rest, and #multitask like a champ,” she wrote in the caption on Instagram. Way to go, mom! (Source: Refinery29.com)
We love commericals that make us forget they're actually selling or marketing a product, and this Jollibee commerical falls into that category. Grandparents’ Day is happening this Sunday, September 11, and to celebrate, Jollibee released another video, “Kahera,”as part of their #KwentongJollibee series . We won’t spoil anything for you, but it starts off with a seemingly unpleasable elderly customer. This one’s sure to give you your daily dose of happiness.
You should also check out this video entitled “Almusal” about an elderly couple. Though from a few months back, we’ve been seeing it pop up a number of times on our feeds lately. Be warned: you'll need tissues for the tears...and probably for the burger and spaghetti you'll end up buying because of the beautiful memory this ad brings.
3. This dad who helped out a pregnant mom and her crying child
Of the three, this story of a simple act of kindness crushed us. The world needs more everyday heroes like the dad, from the post above, who helped out a pregnant mom, a fellow airline passenger whom he didn't know, soothe her crying child while they were on a plane.
Another passenger on the same flight, Angela Byrd, saw what was happening and told the story via Facebook on Everything Georgia page. “He told her that he was a DAD, and wanted to help her so she could rest. He walked the aisle most of the flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta comforting this woman's son as if he was his own.” It was a two hour and a half hour flight, according to Google. Parents everywhere are grateful for people like this dad. (Source: Popsugar.com)
