Sweet Young Man Supports His Great Grandfather Through Parkinson's Struggle

This video will inspire you. A sweet young man supports his great-grandfather through Parkinson's struggle.

In this heartfelt video, the granddaughter of a man with Parkinson's shares about discovering that they noticed in 2013 that he was not as mobile anymore. He was shuffling his feet. She tells of his diagnosis. You see a picture of him when he was younger, healthy, and strong in front of a canyon. She shares about how he used to be very active, always outside and playing with them. 

The granddaughter expresses the hardship of seeing how he has not been able to be a part of as many experiences with them. You see precious photos of the grandpa with his great-grandson. The little boy’s name is TJ. We see pictures of him with this precious boy as a baby and toddler. The granddaughter shares how TJ brought new joy in her grandfather’s life. TJ appears to have a sweet relationship with his great-grandpa. His mom describes how TJ saw them helping his great-grandpa, and it became something that he wanted to participate in as well. You see video clips of TJ helping the great grandpa by holding his hand to help him through a doorway and eating meals with him. 

The woman describes the value of the next generation loving on the former ones and caring for family. She explains the importance of being unified and helping each other when we need it. This video is inspiring and motivating to us to love others well. A little two-year-old is noticing the needs of his great grandpa and stepping up to help. Jesus is the perfect example for us. We can also learn from Him how to better care for the family of God. We are all in the body of Christ and we are called to love one another.

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4
