That one simple word sums up my thoughts and feelings on CBS' new show Live For The Moment, scheduled to premiere Thursday, January 28, 2010 at 8/7c p.m.
In the first life-changing episode, host Jeff Pobst meets Roger Childs, a husband and father of two boys diagnosed with ALS (better known as Lou Gehrig's disease).
Once an active skier, a space enthusiast, and licensed pilot hopeful, Childs life changed at the age of 38 when learning of his diagnosis.
Childs and his wife Julie discuss in a (very) raw emotional moment how it felt to learn that Childs had a remaining life expectancy of 2 to 5 years.
Once the initial shock was over, Childs decided to embrace every day as though it was his last. And with the help of LFTM executive producers Jeff Pobst and Mark Burnett, he'll do just that with a series of adventures that create lasting family memories and shares powerful life lessons for viewers.
Childs' inspirational ways in which he lives his life are sure to change the way others live.
I know it did mine, and my husbands.
By the time we had finished watching this episode, Brian and I both had a new outlook on life. Realizing how frequently we fail to express our love for one another and embrace the time with each other and our children with which we have been blessed.
Grab the tissues. Thursday, January 28th at 8/7c.
