  • I also was on the verge of tears. I tend to put on the act of being an emotionless single parent. The one with tattoos as well as being a business owner and having a full time job.
    But... for those that get to know me, see the hurt and pain that I tried to hide.
    My grandmother is one of those. When I call her, with no caller id and her being a healthy 92 year old, once I say hi Nana, she recognizes my voice.
    I have would down all that I admire about her and once I made that call, I would have been crying tears of joy. - 5/11/2014 6:05:01 PM
  • I don't know how anyone can listen to these calls and not be brought to tears. It reminds us to tell the people in our lives how important they are to us while we can. - 4/7/2014 9:46:04 AM

  • This was great! I'm going to do a meditation through a tape that I have on gratitude. Yest, i had a hard time getting off the couch. Today is new day! Thanks for the spark! - 2/16/2014 7:58:26 AM
  • This made me happy just watching it. Thank you. An "attitude of gratitude" should be practiced at all times. Be grateful for what you have right now. There is always someone, somewhere worse off than you. - 2/15/2014 1:44:27 PM
  • I am sending notes of gratitude to my loved ones right now.
    Thank you for the reminder!

  • Okay. It made me cry. I so wish my Dad was still here. This made me miss him. How lucky I was to have him for my Dad. - 2/2/2014 4:22:16 AM
  • This made me cry because the person that inspired me is not around anymore. But I feel much since I listened to this. - 2/1/2014 9:05:40 AM
  • Any kind gesture usually helps others to have a better day.. Expressing gratitude is not a bad thing and can possibly help someone have a better feeling about being value as a worker, friend, relative or any other kind of place in others lives.. - 1/30/2014 6:52:36 PM
  • Well telling people you love them and are grateful for them is such an easy way to find happiness, why not do it every day.? - 1/30/2014 1:10:44 PM
  • OMGosh! This made me cry happy tears. I am going to add this to my weekly goals. I'm going to call or write a different family member and all those that are dear to me on a weekly basis. I will tell them how much I love them and how much they mean to me! This is my favorite inspirational video to date! - 1/29/2014 8:25:48 AM
  • Tomorrow is the funeral of the daughter of a friend of mine.. The deceased was 46, and suffered from MS.. This is such a tragedy , I found myself grateful for all who live that I love, like and treasure... Hug someone you love today and tell them you love them.. If they are far away, call them or even send a nice hello in the mail... Who knows it may bring some happiness into a lonely heart.. Someone missing a friend or loved one and then Voila they hear from them.... - 1/28/2014 6:00:36 PM
  • Don't feel bad, I'm sitting here bawling my eyes out and am about to call my mummy and daughter and tell them how special they are to me!! My granddaughter Ivory thinks I'm nuts, but I told her even though she drives me crazy sometimes, I wouldn't trade her for all the ivory in Africa!! - 1/26/2014 11:29:40 AM
  • This made me cry. Good grief, I'm too emotional - 1/26/2014 10:45:18 AM
