Ms. Clara Morabito thrilled and inspired our audience in 2008 with her poem “I Choose”. At age 87 standing at her walker, with the sadness of her husband Philip in a nursing home, she STILL chose to live her life with Grace, Ease and GUSTO! Here is the poem she recited about 10 times a day while dancing around her apartment on a walker.
I choose to be happy I choose to be well I choose to be patient
I choose to be grateful I choose to be fine I choose to be strong
I choose to be caring I choose to be healthy I choose to be calm
And always be thoughtful. All of the time. All the day long.
Clara died on 01 June 2015 surrounded by her loving family. I will forever feel grateful for knowing her and inspired by her LOVE, courage, positive attitude, and her willingness to gracefully deal with the challenges of her life. No matter what she picked herself up, dusted herself off and LIVED FULLY all over again!
