When it comes to enjoying life to the fullest, we could all take notes from the wisdom our seniors have! Grandparents’ birthdays are also occasions to celebrate, and children go out of their way to make them special. Recently, a Reddit user shared a sweet video of her grandmother celebrating her birthday. As she was about to cut her cake, she was in for a surprise! Watch the video here:
