Gratitude is the key to happiness

This was so great. Amazing.
The delivery, the story, the message, the video- incredible.
Thank you for this video.
I have definitely seen, through observation and experience, how important it is to be grateful to others and to the Lord. It is the key to living a happy life.
I showed the video to my family and sent it out via email to all of my friends! They all loved it and were truly uplifted by this message.
Thank you again

Wonderful video!

First SA, your experience also choked me with tears as did the video. I'm a registered nurse & worked in CCU & ICU, etc. And, when I was working, I, too, responded to Code Blues many times. I've worked with doctors like Dr. Leibowitz & SA's husband. It is the Jewish ideals, too, that life is precious & to choose life, means doing all we can to save a life.
And, it also reminded me of gratitude. Today, I have my own disabilities & cannot work any longer. It was the tenacity of a physical therapist for over 2 yr 3x/week that got me out of my wheelchair, to a walker, & now only a cane. Now, I have eye & face spasms that affect my reading & driving in traffic. I've been so focused on what I can't do that this reminds me to remember what I CAN do. I can walk again. I can see with miracle meds. I still can use my fingers to type this. My ears listen to the video & my eyes can see most of it.
Not only do we need to be grateful to the doctors, nurses, PT, OT, etc., but we also need to be grateful to the Ulitimate Healer.
Thanks for a wonderful video

We need this in Hebrew

This is an important and powerful message. We need it in Hebrew, or at least with subtitles.

This is a magnificent website! My wife just introduced me to it last week. We are discovering Judaism and it is videos like this that make us realize how beautiful this religion is.

Thank you Aish,

Save a life; Save the World

My husband is a physician at a large medical center. Soon after we got married a woman approached us. My husband introduced us and the woman grasped my hand with both of hers and looked me deeply in my eyes and said, "Your husband saved my life" I became very choked up, as did she. I never forgot this woman or the many patients of his who have said the same thing to me many times My husband works very long hours, but I never complain. I do my best to provide a happy and peaceful life for him. I know part of my purpose is to take good care of him, so he can save more lives.

Saved My Life

I came onto this website because I was having a TERRIBLE day...I was looking for something to uplift me just to get me through the rest of the day. This did MUCH more than that. You have given me reason to be be grateful and happy again. We tend to forget how blessed each of us- just the mere fact that we are alive. Now I will show my gratitude to you... Thank you for this moving video and for emotionally bringing me back to life. THANK YOU
