Thankful for My Van!
tomorrow my van will take us to see one of my best friends, shirley and her family, in bossier city, louisiana! i can't wait! it's been TOO long since we have seen each other! on monday my van will take us to fort worth, texas, to see one of my other best friends, susan and her family, as well as susan's extended family! they moved to texas back in may and i miss her bunches!
my van took us to the mountains of north carolina to see another of my best friends, kym and her family, back in the spring! it took us to see my childhood best friend, amy and her family, just a few weeks ago! it takes me all over the state for conferences and appointments related to Down syndrome too! again, i get to see lots of my internet besties as well because of my old van!
not to forget ALL THE DRIVING i do in a week just around town..... my van has LOTS of miles on it! it's taken us from texas to washington, d.c. and up into tennessee....and all the states in between! i just needed this reminder of how very blessed we are to have reliable transportation. i'm afraid that i take it for granted all too often....
