This sweet viral video shows a lonely grandpa asking his granddaughter over for a sleepover and the plans that they end up making for the night.
Megan Elizabeth is 29 years old, and she grew up in Illinois across the street from her grandparents. Her grandmother died of Alzheimer's a few years ago, but her 92-year-old grandfather is still with us, although his health is declining.
Recently, Megan's grandfather texted her asking is she wanted to have a sleepover at his house. And she made a video that she shared on TikTok where she showed his heartwarming text messages.
"Hi Megan it’s grandpa," her grandfather wrote. "Would you like to come over and have a sleepover? I haven't been feeling well and miss you. We can order food and watch a mystery show. Love, grandpa."
"Yes! I’ll be over around 7!" Megan replied. "Would you like me to get you something from the store or anything for dinner?"
Lonely Grandpa Texts Granddaughter and Their Bond Is so Touching
"Could you pick up applesauce?" her grandfather wrote back. "The cinnamon kind. And if you go somewhere with mash potatoes, I would like that because I have no teeth and can only eat soft things. Ha. Love you, Grandpa."
"Okay! I will see you soon," she answered.
"Thank you. You are my favorite granddaughter," he wrote. But Megan made sure to point out that she was his only granddaughter.
Then he followed up with more text: "Can you bring me strawberry ice cream too?"
Later that night, Megan stopped by her grandpa's house with all the goodies that he requested. And the pair had a nice evening together while they watched a show and ate some dinner. Then Megan's grandfather got a bed made up for her and even woke up at 5:30 am to say goodbye to her before she left for work.
"I am thankful for my grandpa and he will never understand how much love he truly has shown me," shared Megan. "And more importantly, the love he showed my grandma while she was alive. I believe in love and loyalty because of this man. He is my hero."
What a sweet bond these two have! And it is simple moments like these that will forever be cherished. God bless the love between a granddaughter and her grandfather!
