With his briefcase and lunch in one hand, this drenched dad has gone viral for keeping his son dry.
Of course, he could have just carried his son and had his son hold the umbrella and both stayed dry. Umbrella user level – amateur. Dad level – swoon.
“Umbrella Dad” did leave us with an adorable photo but what it says goes beyond just the simple gesture of keeping his son dry while sacrificing himself to the rain. He has, maybe unknowingly, given his son an important example of selflessness; of sacrificing your own comfort for someone else. His son now sees the joy of giving to someone else.
For those of us viewing this image around the world, it serves as a sweet reminder of the small sacrifices parents make every day.
