    She came up Wednesday and was talking about this video clip she had seen on a morning show about this lion reuniting with his former caretakers and how moving it was. So, I shared the story with her from snopes and the youtube video on Christian the lion (thanks to another board member who posted it). She cried and cried and went on about about that was just pure, unadulterated love.

    Now, other than clicking on a link in an email, my mom has never been to youtube. The next day (yesterday - Thursday), she went to youtube and searched and found the video and apparently watched it like half a dozen times.

    I called her yesterday and she answered in tears and she said, 'I need a support group.' :rofl:

    All because of Christian the lion. That really is a wonderful video and I watch it and tear up myself everytime. I was pretty surprised, though, that she reacted so strongly. She's an animal person, but not like me. I think we could all learn something from Christian.

    How about we just share your Mom? Really..........I don't live that far away. :D

    That's so sweet. Funny. But sweet.

    Now you know what to get her for Christmas........either the book Born Free, or the Movie. :rofl: And a large supply of tissues. ;)

    WhymeMom? No real answers to life..

    It is rare when we see very open displays of genuine affection, so when you see it from a 250+ pound lion toward a human it is moving indeed.......

    Lisa, I will happily share my mom with you. She cracks me up sometimes. I was pretty surprised at her reaction, but then she always cried at that game show when the people chose the right door. :rofl: The Born Free movie is a great gift idea for her. Thanks! I never know what to buy her. She's one of those what do you buy for someone who has everything.
