Thank you Ellen. Every so often something is said on television that makes so much sense and hits all the right spots. Your comment to Lea Michele about 'cracked hearts letting in the light, letting in the sun' hit all of them. No truer words could have been said. It may take awhile, but, the sun does eventually get through the cracks.
Keep doing what you do, make people laugh... and get people to reach their "AHA" moment!

I love your show because you are gentle, kind, uplifting, supportive, and a wonderful person. She appears to be getting her strength back and moving on with her life. We all have to at some point but the good thing is she has memories that will last forever. In time, her heart will be back intact.

Love the quote. I posted it on my FB to all my other widow friends :) I have a strong bunch of warriors of Melanoma friends. We have lost husbands, wifes, kids..to this deadly cancer. So days you wonder why you are left behind. But we have all learned to help each other. With out their support, my heart would still be in a million ****tered pieces.

Broken hearted.....that's me mostly everyday. My husband an I have been together since I was 13.... we wed when I was 18. Its been a lovely ride. Then he passed away Feb 22 2012 and my worlds been turned inside out. He's the only man I've ever been with. I don't know how to date, and I'm scared to try. Then someone made me remember, its not about my sorrow...its about giving love. So, everyday I'm able, I hug my 5 yr old grandson Jordan as tight as I can without hurting him..and he squeezes me right back. Jordan had Downs Syndrome....and he is the most caring.....loving....and delightfully understanding child I have ever seen. When I'm sad, he comes to me and takes my face in his tiny lil hands and gently kisses my forehead as if to say....its OK Grammy....you'll see pop pop again. Then he looks into my eyes like he truly knows something that I dont. And its like he's saying, I'll be here to make sure you know you're loved.
This child is like no other human being I have ever come in contact with. I thank god for him everyday...he is our lil miracle. He's had open heart surgery when he was 3 and doctors marvelled at how he didn't feel pain after and never cried. He just played in his hospital crib the day after his surgery like he was trying to make us not feel sorrow for him. So when I think of broken hearts I think of my own, then he makes me remember that he's here to make us all happy again. Merry Christmas Ellen and everyone who watches. And remember broken hearts are just stepping stones to the next wonderful thing called everlasting love. Rose Blair

I never looked at heartbreak that way. Thank you, Ellen. My daughter was killed by an impaired driver at Christmas nine years ago. Every day is that day for me. But now I know she would have seen it your way. She is the light.

Ellen,

Thank you so much for those inspiring words. My best friend was murdered on Christmas Eve 6 years ago. My heart has been broken ever since. The healing process has been slow, especially since the Christmas season is so painful; but these words describe exactly how I've felt, slowly letting the light and the sun in to heal.

Lea is such a beautiful person. Ellen's words of inspiration were "right on the mark" to Lea Michele about Cory. I first became a fan of Lea Michele when she appeared on Glee. I am happy for her success and how she has handled such a painful moment in her life. Thanks Ellen for sharing her story with us and her music!
