What a wonderful time of year! The Thanksgiving holiday may be different for the majority of us but there is still so much to be thankful for. We have endured a lot of changes in 2020 and there is still so much to be thankful for. Adult Education is different than a few months ago but there is still so much to be thankful for. If you are still reading then you have a gratitude attitude. I’m very thankful for all the gratitude attitudes in my community and beyond. If you missed the article in the newsletter that shares the board’s gratitude attitudes, check it out. One of the things that I shared is our Mafia game that we play, I’m not sure if we will play that game this year so I have a list of games that we can play instead, Britni at Play Party provided these by email. I’m taking the gratitude game and the would you rather for sure. Our celebration will be much smaller this year. (update our normal is canceled)

If you are choosing to do something on Zoom for Thanksgiving, these games will work by sharing a screen and a note that I read you can do it with a free account, they are lifting the 40 minutes cut off for the holiday.
The other thing that looks different is Black Friday shopping and that is something to be grateful for. The fact that most retailers have chosen to go back to being closed on Thanksgiving is a blessing in my humble opinion! Many are extending the deals beyond the day offering early deals and curbside pickups. I’m truly thankful and I’m not even a Black Friday shopper. We will spend the weekend camping at New Harmony State Park to get one more camping trip under our belts for this year. I look forward to a nice hike and sitting by the fire with some hot apple cider and a s’more. I’d love to read in the comments more about how your spending this weekend, your gratitude attitude, or perhaps a blessing I’ve missed.
I wish you the best on this Thanksgiving holiday. I hope your blessings are many and your troubles are few.
