I hope you had a safe and happy Thanksgiving! We celebrated at home and on video with our family. With all that is going on this year, it is very easy to focus on what we are missing. You know what I'm thankful for? The things that aren't. Like technology that makes it easy to see family even when we can't travel. Books to take us on adventures when we can't visit faraway lands. And for real, this year, safety and shelter. Our family is very lucky and if you find yourself in a tough place this year, I am thankful that you are still here to complain about it. Some folks haven't had that kind of luck. I'm thinking of you and counting the blessings.
Here are some cool things to get you swinging into your weekend.
