Image of 92-year-old man coloring his wife’s hair amid social distancing goes viral

With so many families spending more time together than they normally would our daily focus has shifted and it seems that it’s the simple things in life that are helping to raise our spirits.

The simple things may mean a family meal or board game but one elderly couple showed it can also mean turning your home into a beauty salon – run by your husband.

Facebook user Yael Shapira Avraham, from Israel, posted a picture of his 92-year-old grandparents showing his grandfather coloring his grandmother’s hair.
