Take a lesson from Fred

There is probably no better feeling in the world than lifting someone's spirits. Tonight my friends and I visited a care center in Monterey, where we chatted with and sang some songs for the residents. It was incredible to see their eyes light up when someone took an interest in their lives. You could see their happiness beaming as you listened to them talk, even if it didn't make any sense!

As I stayed in the room to pack up my violin, a man named Fred beckoned me over. He was the last resident in the room, and he was sitting alone at a table. He said, "Thank you for coming and lifting our spirits. That's what this life is all about. I'm 88 years old, and that's one thing I can tell you for sure--that's what this life is all about."

I thanked him for his kindness and told him, "I'll take that as wisdom from a wise, wise man!"

Fred is right.
