New members joined today and they are awesome! It's so cool to see this community grow and provide support in new ways. At the end of the meeting, we share what we are grateful for. EVERY SINGLE ONE of the new members said that they were most grateful for this meeting. I said something like "I'm grateful for new friends and the perspectives and experiences they bring." Tatiana's leadership really makes this group something special.
