Nadia Tretikov sees the world with the heart and soul of a writer. She sees the extraordinary in the mundane, beauty and goodness in places where it often goes unnoticed. Her writing celebrates beautiful moments in everyday life like a prayer of gratitude. Her empathy with those who suffer is evident, but so is her direction to seek out and give thanks for the many blessings in life.
