A sweet relationship between a girl and her favorite delivery driver is touching people’s hearts all over the world — and inspiring them to spread love in small, everyday ways.
When mom Amy Roberts @mummybear1903 shared the touching video on Twitter, it received over 24 million views, 57,000 likes, and 8,500 retweets.
We’ve previously seen delivery drivers share emotional moments with families on their routes, such as this UPS driver who was surprised to receive her own special Amazon package from the little boy who adores her, or this driver who hilariously interrupted a wife’s shopping prank on her husband.
This sweet moment shared by little Tallulah and her Hermes Parcels delivery man, on the other hand, is affecting people in a very special way.
Amy explains in her Twitter thread that little Tallulah and their Hermes Parcels delivery man developed a special bond during the lockdown.
“We see him one or two times a week… Tallulah drew him a #thankyou… He still has it proudly on show in his van. They have built up quite a friendship over these last few weeks,” her caption reads.
“They always have their little sign language conversations, so cute. Tallulah’s always asking me, ‘Have you bought anything Mum? Is MY friend coming today?’” Amy added in the comments.
Tallulah’s small but heartfelt efforts to brighten another person’s day are now inspiring others around the world to follow in her footsteps.
Comments poured in from Twitter users all over the world in response to Amy’s sweet video.
“Doesn’t take much to be kind and friendly… But some find it so hard to do. Thank you Tallulah, this has put a smile on my face. You must be one proud mother, Amy,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Absolutely love this. Young people are so amazing and uncluttered with other peoples’ opinions and take people at face value. A lesson for us all” wrote another user.
“This actually made me cry. Very reassuring to know there are still lovely people out there,” another user replied.
“How the world should be: everyone getting along,” commented another user.
“This is precious. The world needs love like this,” wrote another user.
“He comes to us too, and [our son also] uses sign [language] with him. His face lights up when we make the effort to sign to him. Such a lovely man,” another user commented.
While Amy’s video is only 16 seconds long, it shows how strong a small gesture can be — and how easy it is to make the world a better place.
“In a world where you can be anything, #BeKind,” Amy says in a comment on her now-viral thread.
