Thank you Lori ! Your words of wisdom are making a difference in my life. I am also sharing some of this wisdom with others.

Thought provoking topic-Thank You

There are several people throughtout my childhood that really had a profound effect on the way I live my life today. Just being around them, I learned so much about yiddishkeit, and how I wanted to live my life. I am still zoche to have several of these individuals still in my life. I try to emulate their good actions and mitzvot, as best as they taught me to. Thank you to my dear frinds out in Chicago. May you all have many years of nachas from your children,grandchildren and great grandchildren.

I love your videos.

I always look to see when Aish has new videos, and I especially look for yours, because I know you you will say something of importance with warmth and caring. I can't thank you enough.

to Lori

Lori, I write from Belgium and I have learned already so much from you. It is like you are a mother and a friend who gives me advice and wisdom. So I can give also the right way to my children. Thank you and Hashem may bless you!

influential people

There can be many influential people that help influence and inspire one's life, regardless of whether they love or dislike the individual - for those who "dislike" a particular individual, that individual can ultimately learn better ways of coping with others, especially since one cannot please everybody. The influential people in my life would start off with my mother and father, then comes teachers and classmates in school, and if one has the time to go over to Israel, they find profound inspiration by the people and the atmosphere there to build significant relationships and friendships. What's also influential can be the power of words (at least for those who have a good memory and auditory learning skills). We should be careful what we say to others in order to say the right words diplomatically, because words can either hurt or inspire. It's also best not to condescend, because it can often be picked up or perceived that way. All in all, it's great when you have heartwarming memories to look back on when it comes to the generosity others have done for you, as well as the generosity you have done for others. It's all a matter of wishing one another well.

For ever grateful

Dear Lori, I know I have told you many times how important you have been in my life. But I do not get tired of thanking you for a wonderful husband, a life of torah and your ongoing wonderful videos that allow us, who are faraway from you, to keep you close and.... almost live! Love you! Deborah

a smiel in the mind!

Dear Lori, thank you for this most beautiful commentary, from the heart. There are so many people in my life who have enriched me on this journey. Some I have managed to reach, and others, well, I remember them, but not their names, it was as handshakes in the dark, a passing comment, a passage up a mountain path, a light here, and a light there, all these blinking lights, so many stars, that opened up, for me, another world and they may never know, and I might never know all their names. For those whose names are close to me I thank them. This is such a beautiful commentary! I want to thank YOU! Ruth

Thank you

I want to do as you suggested...I really appreciate your comments and encouragement. I lost my husband in January of this year and often you encourage me as I am going through the grief and the adjustments that go with it. Thank you.
