Take attention, young people: this is what it looks like to be successful in life.
This kind-hearted grandmother named Maria just celebrated her 89th birthday at her Brazilian home. However, it was far but a quaint event.
It was a party that most people only get to imagine. Grandma Maria shares her home with her daughter, her daughter’s family, and a happy pack of adorable dogs — 10 in all. To them, Maria is the embodiment of kindness and love. And she makes sure all her dogs get plenty.
“The house is very busy!” Vitoria Abencoada, Maria’s daughter, told The Dodo. “She loves living with animals. She loves to cuddle with them.”
Therefore, it only made logical that all those puppies would have a party on Maria’s birthday. As the celebration began, the dogs joined Maria at the table. Of course, no celebration of a birthday would be complete without a birthday song.
Grandma Maria was radiant because she was surrounded by so much affection.
It was ideal:
“The dogs loved participating in Grandma’s party!” Abencoada said. “Here, they are treated as part of the family. They participate in everything.”
Grandma Maria has undoubtedly experienced her fair share of pleasures and celebrations during her many years on Earth. possibly too many to count.
But even after 89 years, things continue to grow better because of her passion for animals and their affection for her.
