November 13 ~ Today I am thankful to own a reliable vehicle. It’s not fancy or new, but it gets me where I need to go. I just take it for granted that I can just get in and go.
That thought really hit home for me this morning while I was out running some errands. I was sort of dreading going grocery shopping this morning because it was an awfully cold morning in the Chicago suburbs. As I was driving, I noticed 2 people riding bicycles and couldn’t imagine how cold they must be. On the way home from the store, I noticed a mom holding a little boys hand while waiting at the bus stop. She had quite a few grocery bags to carry while keeping her child safe. That sight made me feel guilty that I complain about wanting a newer car.
I am so blessed to have a reliable car … I don’t have to rely on riding a bike or depending on the different bus routes and schedules to get where I’m going. Grocery shopping was easy for me, my kids were safe in the shopping cart while I loaded my groceries in my car … no standing on corners waiting in all different kinds of weather … no carrying the heavy bags long distances … no transferring to other buses … my kids safely buckled into car seats for the short ride home. Yes, I am truly blessed to have reliable transportation and will try very hard not to take it for granted any longer.
