Everything is a present
I feel incredibly grateful to have come across this moving video this morning.
Alice survived the concentration camps through her music, her optimism and her gratitude for the small things that came her way – a smile, a kind word, the sun.
Her attitude towards life is truly inspiring and humbling.
During her time in the concentration camp, she was determined to not only survive, but thrive. For the sake of not only herself, but her young son.
Asked if she had any pain during her time there, she said no. She said, with a smile, she was “always laughing”.
Her wisdom – “how can a child not laugh if the mother is laughing?”
I am truly humbled.
