Lori your talks are always so inspirational. My wife is close to 83 aand always fearing a tomorrow instead of enjoying another day. She has just been in hospital for a heart problems and now looks differently at life. She told me just yesterday that she looks at every new day as a bonus and decided to enjoy every minute with her chidren and grand children.I forwarded this Video clip to her personal PC to share your wisdom and your comforting thoughts. May G-d bless your parents and all your family Amen.
