While having breakfast this morning I witnessed a simple yet powerful gesture that touched my heart.
A family of four makes their way to a table near me; mum pushing a pram with baby and young preschooler with dad following at the end. The dad decides to turn back to cafe counter for highchair, but rather than just letting his young son follow the rest he bends down and plants a kiss on his son’s head and gently pushes him in the direction of the rest of the family.
Such a simple way to reassure and say I love you; you are safe.
To witness this bond and sign of affection between father and son was beautiful and made my day.
