Have You Seen This? Family adorably using the power of music therapy

This video will make your day, your week and possibly your month.

THE HOME — You may not believe me, but the real reason I love doing "Have You Seen This" articles is because I hope to make someone's day a little brighter with a great video and hopefully a joke or two in the story.

I don't always succeed, but that's always my goal. And I know the video today will make you smile. In fact, it will likely make your day or maybe even your whole week. That feeling won't come from anything I write, and truth be told I'll have nothing to do with it, but rather it will be the video itself.

Amanda Bowman Gray posted this video of her daughter playing the guitar for her 2-year-old son and when you combine her description and the video itself it will touch your heart.

"My daughter Lydia was watching Bo while I was in the shower," Gray wrote on Facebook. "Came out to this. If she didn’t have a guitar I don’t know if she would know how to babysit him. This is her go to. It’s proof that music therapy works. Bo is 25 months old and has a 12-word vocabulary. Every word he has learned has been through music and singing."

First off, Bo is otherworldly adorable and Lydia isn't too bad on that guitar, but watching this brother and sister bond over music melts my heart. While all of that is amazing to watch, it's when you hear Bo say "happy" that a huge smile will break out over your face and you can't help but feel like a million bucks.

Thank you, Amanda Gray, for posting this video of your kids. Thank you, Lydia, for being an amazing big sister, and thank you, Bo, for being you and making all of our lives that much better today.
