According to the video, two family members joined her and played the guitar accompaniment to the gospel song One Day at a Time, written by Marijohn Wilkin and Kris Kristofferson. Whatever religion you practice, you can feel the strength and heart that went into this beautiful performance as the woman sings. The song’s title is appropriate given that it emphasizes life’s journey and faith.
While the younger generation frequently has a less religious disposition, as our parents and grandparents get older, religion can take on a particularly significant role in their life. Some people’s lives are propelled by their beliefs. Even for non-religious people, seeing this granny sing with her family is enough to make us all cry.
When you view the video, you’ll notice that the woman first seems as like she could be a little bored. She should feel that way, after all. She instantly becomes interested, though, and begins to sing along as if she were an angel as soon as the man begins playing the song’s opening notes. You can tell from the woman’s wide spectrum of emotions as she sings that she has experienced a lot in her life. She also appears content. Children can learn about love and compassion by being taught to understand and appreciate music, which we know she does from the way she sings. Clearly giving it her all, the woman is singing as meaningfully and passionately as she is able to.
You can also sense that the older woman and the male are pleased to see that she is content. All too frequently, our elderly people experience depression. It’s common to feel as though life has changed as you get older. But as they sang and played the guitar, this woman was reminded of the significance of her life. You can hear the emotion in her voice just by listening to her cover of One Day at a Time. She is now aware of her life’s purpose. She’s essentially returning to her interests.
Numerous artists’ albums include One Day at a Time, which is well-known among Christians. However, after hearing this grandmother perform with her family, we are left to question if she has ever released a solo record. We would absolutely pay her to sing this song for us. It’s incredibly emotional to hear her sing with such genuine feeling, and to see her grin and sway to the music.
Times can be a little difficult for our elderly. It’s critical to keep them engaged with the outside world, bring back their passions, and find ways to bring them joy. That is precisely what the family of this 93-year-old woman decided to do. They almost quickly transported her back to a period of time and location where she might easily find happiness, and we have no doubt that she will remain there for some time.
