What is happiness? For 101-year-old Albina Foisy from Lillooet, British Columbia, happiness is as simple as enjoying and playing in the snow–reminding us to embrace the little child in us and appreciate life’s simple pleasures. After all, no one is really too old to have fun and live life to the fullest.
Meanwhile, for a son like Armand Foisy, being able to witness that priceless moment is what true happiness means. He was driving with his wife and mother through the snow when he stopped the car along Highway 99, a few kilometers south of Lillooet to check if there was any traffic coming. And then this happened.
His centenarian mother, Albina unbuckled her seat belt and hopped out of the car to check the snow.
“It’s snowing quite a bit. It’s kinda fun to play in the snow!” Albina said giddily.
Armand did not waste any time too. He then grabbed his camera and started filming his mother. Albina, who was so thrilled about the snow even grabbed some and made them into snowballs, pure joy written all over her face.
“When you have a mother who’s 101 years old, it’s a good idea to keep the camera nearby for those special moments,” Armand said.

The Facebook post has since gone viral with over 7 million views as of this writing. It also received positive responses from many viewers and readers online, each of them inspired by Albina’s infectious happiness and positivity.
“That’s the amazing thing about her. Her strength and her joy of living is not diminished one iota. She laughs at everything, she’s so giving,” Armand added.
Indeed, moments like this are what we live for. Seeing our loved ones happy makes us feel twice the happiness that we couldn’t trade for anything in the world.
Amazing 19-month Old Boy Can Already Read More Than 300 Words
Impressive reading skills for such a young child!
Can you remember the first word you said? Or how many words you could read when you were just a toddler? Obviously not - because probably, you, like many other kids, started reading around the age of four or five years.
The pattern of child development usually dictates that children less than two years of age have yet to learn the skill of reading. We say usual since there is no hard and fast rule that pins this milestone at a certain age; child development occurs at varying rates.

According to Carter's mom, LaToya, little Carter started recognizing words at a young age of seven months. He started sounding out the words when he was barely a year old.

Taking a page from Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show, the couple played the “The Whisper Challenge” with Alexa’s dad and mom to break the news. The idea here is that a player wears noise-cancelling headphones while listening to loud music while the other player says a phrase.
