Guaranteed gratitude or receive a refund!

I wasn't going to post anything today but this evening I was catching up on my blog reading and became inspired by all the "Gratitude" posts. Realizing that even though my family is scattered and our future is so uncertain, my heart is filled with joy despite the whirlwind around us.

I was fortunate enough to stumble on this youtube video by Louie Schwartzberg of TEDxSF which was posted on cottage 960's blog. It's almost 10 minutes long, but so captivating and inspiring, I just had to borrow it. And if you don't have time to look at it now, bookmark it for later. I promise you will be uplifted. Guaranteed or your money back! :)

Hi Gail,
This was so beautiful...thank you. Since it was 10 minutes as you said, I got a gin and tonic, since I am somewhat ADD and sat and enjoyed every second.
Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven is at hand. maybe if we were to be still and really try, we could see the beauty that is all around us.

i am so glad that you showed me this video!
