Since a theme of gratitude seems to weave it's way through every TED talk I've enjoyed, I decided to share a few of my favorites this weekend. I spent time this week reflecting on everything I am grateful for and it was beautiful and humbling to see my list. I hope you all have many things to be grateful for, and if you have only one or two things on your list, know that it is enough to start there. Have a great weekend...
