As I expect my first child....

Lori, If I am to be half the mother you are to my own child(ren), who we are anxiously anticipating the arrival of (G-d willing), he or she will be have as many blessing as there are stars in the sky. Thank you for all of your teachings. You are already impacting the next generation!

Becoming religious

It pleased me so much to hear about your mother's reaction to you becoming religious, Lori. I'm glad that she was so accepting and that you acknowledge it. Currently, I am in the process of deciding whether I want to become religious and am facing mixed reactions from my family, ranging from supportive to confused (like why would you want to do that?). It was great for me to hear how well things seem to have worked out for you. I enjoy hearing your advice and stories.

beautiful Laurie, may your children speak so warmly of you and continue in your derech that inspires so many! Your mother clearly taught you to recognize our obligation to each other. continued Hatzlacha!!

Lori's Mom

I have had the honor and pleasure of meeting Lori's mom on several occasions. Like Lori, she is devoted to her family. She is a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her warmth and love of others are true and deep. Her beautiful paintings reflect the joy she brings to this world. Lori is truly her mother's daughter.

Very Touching - Thank You

Thank was so wonderful to watch and listen to. I only wish I had my own Mother here with me physically on this world, but take great inner peace in knowing she is living a beautiful existance near Hashem in Gan Eden. I only hope she realizes just how much I miss her EVERY DAY of the year and thank her every day for all the things she taught me and thank Hashem for gifting me with a very SPECIAL Mother that will always live strongly everyday within me. I love and miss you SO much, Mommy.

that was heartwarming!

It takes a lot of courage for a parent to allow her/his child to do something or succeed in something that they have not yet done. I think that you do what you do best, Lori, because of your sincere mother. She gave you an upbringing that is broad and interesting so that you can appeal to many different kinds of people. Thank G-d.
