Wow...I just watched your "almost live" video about your kodak moment and it really made me think. I work long hours and am a fanatic about keeping my home in order...my husband on the other hand is very easy going and relaxed...he is not a "neat freak." My kodak moment, when I get home at night and the house is a mess and I am ready to blow, is of my husband, sitting in his chair with my two little dogs in his lap sleeping peacefully and my big dog at his feet snoozing. When he married me, he "took" them as well...my dogs are my heart and his loving them is the way to my heart....even when the house is a wreck. Thank you for sharing...

We all need that reminder...
Thank you for giving us an excellent idea for how to remember why we love someone... I also think that it's good to write down a list of good things about your fiance and why you are marrying him while you're engaged,and to look at it every so often- or even frame it and hang it up so that you cna always remember.

Like an Arrow Through My Heart
Once again, Lori Palatnik shares an everyday moment from her life that enables the viewer to see the real truth in our lives -- and essentially Hashem in our lives. Like an arrow through my heart, watching the presentation I couldn't help but think of my wife and call my her to tell her how much I love her. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you so much for bringing us more Lori...she has such a way with words; they go straight to your heart, and she is such an inspiration and terrific teacher!

Your "Kodak Moment" piece is an absolutely priceless piece of advice to anyone and everyone - keep up the great work!

Lori - really hit home!
Lori - you really made me cry - tears of joy - for those moments when I can "strangle" my husband and kids. I will now "picture" my husband and kids hugging and laughing instead of focussing on the negative. Thanks for putting things into perspective.

Knowing the Rabbi, I can share your Kodak moment. If I could find even the tiniest photo of my Ex in such a picture, I'd still be married!

Dear Lori, Beautiful! Thank you. We call it the Happy Place!Thank you.

That was GREAT!!! You are absolutely right. One day all that will matter is those relationships. Not the house and all that other stuff. Not how "nice" it is or not. Just the true connections of people with other people. Thanks for putting it so well!

Dear Lori;I love what you are doing. That was beautiful. You made my day!
