Today, I am thankful for my car. But it's more than just a car, pieces of metal and plastic and wires and who knows what else. It's a time machine that helps me travel to wonderful places and visit with friends and family and bring back so many memories. It's a home for a couple days on long road trips to Florida, me at the wheel, Riley in her crate in the back seat, listening to music and watching the world from the front window. Whether I've driven to Florida, or Georgia, or Rochester, or Fort Wayne, or West Virginia, it's taken me on adventures that I will remember for a long time.
My car has helped me move from one home to another - you wouldn't believe how much stuff you can get in the back of this little Rav when you need to! It's been a constant in my life when other things have changed. It's gotten me to work and back and meetings and back and sat in parking garages, and still started right up for me. I try to take care of it and it has taken care of me.
In a mobile world, I am thankful to have my own little car to get me around, city or highway, small town or big city. Without it, my world would be less interesting, and much smaller.
