Can I get an amen?

Phew. I think extra good news is in order this week, don't you?

I'm loving the Black Friday pushback trend. I especially enjoy the idea of making state parks and other outdoor areas free on Black Friday. That's a deal and a half.

Besides offering all sorts of practical help, the people of Bute, Scotland are welcoming Syrian refugees with a free screening of It's a Wonderful Life. I can't wrap my mind around all of the ways that is amazing.

This 16 year-old guy has invented a device to allow people with certain disabilities to speak using breath patterns. It is light, user friendly, extremely affordable, and it actually works: a virtually unheard of combination for adaptive equipment.

Preorders for my first book shipped this week! My sister and I are really pleased with the final product and we're getting lots of good feedback from people who have received their copies.

This restaurant owner is offering free dinner to anyone who will be spending Thanksgiving Day alone.

I LOVE this list of hilarious Thanksgiving food requests. "Butt rolls"!

Here's Collin's number one favorite thing right now. Simultaneously freaky and amazing. Pay no attention to the drug references.

And if you're still feeling down, all you have to do is watch this video of Baby Collin talking and laughing. My work here is done.
