TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.  Many TED tapings cross my path from various sources.  The messages are remarkable, although finding the time to enjoy them can be challenging.

There are two TED videos I would like to recommend to you:

The first one (Firefighter) is short and simple – perfect for my current attention span capabilities.  The second (Happiness) discusses an observation of money and happiness.  Each support and prompt us to give to others.  I may be in an optimistic mood today, but it seems like the pendulum is swinging towards a movement of kindness.  Maybe I just am now noticing.  We are getting to know our neighbors again; our communities are joining together for various causes for good; we really want to know, “How can I help?”  Nice to see, nice to participate, nice to receive.

And one more video, although not a TED video, but one that I recently shared through Facebook (many have shared, actually) that I think merits a look.  It made me smile and cry simultaneously while hope washed through my heart.  Click here and enjoy –

Before I sign off, please join me in saying a prayer or two for a couple of young men battling cancer with ferocious faith, attitude and resilience – Tyler Smith – http://fight2thefinish.com/warriors/

and Vinny DiGerolamo http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/vinnydigerolamo.  You may notice a common denominator in these two – their family is dedicated to service and their gratitude is enormous.  They inspire me every day.

May I be an answer to someone’s prayer today (one of my husband’s favorite sayings…) – and may you, too!
