WATCH: 90 Year-Old Man Shares The Secret to Lasting Happiness

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 01/29/15

Proof that happiness isn’t about money, fame, or success

This touching video of a 90 year-old fruit farmer and photographer reminds us of what life is all about: family, faith, love, memories, beauty, bounty, and most of all, gratitude.
