Miz Becky sent this to me in a email this morning... and I just had to share.

See, I'm a crier. I admit it.
I need to attend some sort of 12-step program for folks who can't keep their emotions in check.
I cry at cute toilet paper commercials and babies doing funny things... along with any and everthing else, but some things just get the ol' waterworks going with a vengence... you know what I mean?
Some things just move me and this is one of them.

After watching the video, go to the link (below) and read the wonderful, heartwarming story behind it.

Now that you've watched it, please go read the inspiring true story that explains the making of the video...
You'll be glad you did!

A Bite Of Life

And Miz Becky? Thank you for making my day!

Hi there, I should not be surprised (1) that you got this email today like I did and (2) you are a 'crier' ... yup, wish I had stock in Puffs/Tissue.The video of the couple playing the piano is priceless ... try looking at the link marked "Stephanie's Story" ... her's is only one reason that I "Relay" (Relay for Life) Wipe your eyes, dear friend ... we don't a 12 step program "I'm okay, you're okay!"

HI ya Crisco Cween. I love a sappy story like this. I've been boo-hooing all day (after reading about Holly the Pug getting her wings), so I had my tissues handy.

Thanks again for voting for me... So far I have 107 votes, and Jennifer Fleck is blowing me out of the water BUT - it ain't over til the fat lady sings!

Ah, Tatersmama...
you made me cry too. Mostly from laughter, watching the old couple jiving away and the way he pats her on the toosh, swapping and changing positions. So cool! The Bite of Life was inspirational too.
Thank you, have a nice day.

What an inspiration! Proves that older people still have lots to offer! Thanks for that wonderful post, Tatersmama!

That was so touching! God is good! Thank you for sharing =) Folgers coffee commercials get me every time, the boy coming home, even that darn Budweiser commercial with the foal in the field waiting to be big enough...sniff...pass the tissues!

Welllll in B.C. times (before children), I wasn't a crier... then dad-gumit, something happened... now, I find myself getting teary eyed over ...??... a lot more than I used to.
ANYway, LOVED the story -what appreciation her children obviously learned. And what a trooper she is. SO neat to see the bite out of the sandwich. REALLY makes one appreciate the Little Things.
Also, what a hoot that couple was. I love witnessing Pure Love.

I love the couple playing the piano! The story of the woman with the tumors is so wonderful too!

The Wife said...

What a cute couple!! Love the story behind it as well. Thanks for sharing!

Becky said...

I knew you would like this video, I didn't know the story behind it. Mayo Clinic helped my grandfather many, many years ago. We have a huge clinic in Lakeland and I think they need a piano, too. I see so many sad faces when I'm there, it would bring smiles I just know it.

Thanks for sharing this video! As for the commercials.... pass the tissues please.

This was SOOO great!!! And to add to the fun there's the lady in the background outside who doesn't know anything is going on and misses it all -yet appears the world over on YOU TUBE!! LOL

I don't have time to read the story but I will as soon as I get home in the morning. Gotta go for an overnight test. They are in for a treat with me. Hope they're up to all night conversation!!

Robynn's Ravings said...

Ok, I'm back and went and watched more and read. LOVED THIS! What a miracle for that lady and what an incredibly inspiring couple at that piano. They look like great friends as well as marriage partners. THAT's a miracle right there. THANK YOU FOR UPLIFTING ME!
