They styled her hair — just like sisters are supposed to
It’s easy to forget sometimes — but sisters are literally the best. They’ve got your back, they know all your most embarrassing secrets, and they’ve seen you at your absolute worst (but love you anyway). If you need a little reminder of the true enduring bonds of siblings, just watch this recent video of two sisters in their 90’s taking care of their other sister. No guarantees that your heart won’t completely explode from all the sweetness.
“My 97-year-old grandma is being loved by her sisters, all in their 90s,” the caption of the video, posted on Love What Matters, read. “When my sisters are old, I will brush their hair and make sure they look pretty, until the very end. My grandma got her wish to have hospice in her own home.”
Did you hear the part where the bedridden sister said, “one sister taking care of another”? Nope. Not crying at all right now.
Perhaps the most moving part of this video is the fact that the two sisters are so earnestly and sweetly trying to get their sister’s bangs just the way she usually likes to wear them. Such a simple, kind gesture. Also, the look of pure contentment on their sick sister’s face as she’s lovingly fussed over.
Unsurprisingly, the video — which runs at just 40 seconds long — already has six million views, and hundreds of thousands of likes. Facebook users flooded the comment section to express all the ~feelings~ the footage gave them — and to share their own sister stories. Many recalled the small, simple gestures that meant to world to their ailing siblings, like bathing them, styling their hair or painting their nails.
OK, so, the moral of this story is that you should definitely pick up the phone and call your sister immediately. Thank her for listening to you complain for several hundred hours, for always being there, and for not making fun of all your weird quirks (or — at least not making too much fun).
Also, it might not hurt to send her this video and reassure her that you will 100% style her bangs just the way she likes them someday.
