    Gosh, hearing Kane's mom speak an asian language where she sprikles in different English words is just super comforting to hear because that is exactly how my Mother and Grandmothers speak.

    Im crying now because she's so full of wisdom and gratitude it really touched me 😣 so many people complain about America and taking the freedom we have for granted it's time to appreciate all the little things in life.

    I’m going to do this with my mom, as I have a lot of regret not doing it with my dad before he passed. Everyone told me to ask him questions but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. It felt like if I did, I was letting him go. Which isn’t the case at all! I wish I’d asked him and knew him for more than what I saw him as. I won’t make that mistake again! ❤️😊 miss you, dad. Every day 😘😘😘😘

    Thank you for making this video, my Mom passed away when I was 21, I’m 33 now and recently thought what it would be like to have an adult conversation with her like you and your Mom did.

    Her childhood might have had some similarities with your Mom, she was raised in the Philippines with 8 other siblings, moved to Canada and had kids, worked a ton of jobs to keep us fed. I was always curious how she could be so happy all the time, when life has so many struggles.

    I think your Moms words are very special and we can all learn from them.
    Much love to your wonderful Mom, you, and your family!

    Your parents are true Americans! They came here and their contribution to the United States is startling. They worked hard and raised their family who also contribute to our country and society. Thank you so much for sharing! ❤️
