Thankfulness Day 16:  I am thankful for my car

I had the same car for a long time. I didn’t pick it out and it was everything I didn’t want in a car.

A few months ago, I got a new car. I picked it out. Me! It is the first car I ever really picked myself. And, I love it.

I am so thankful for my car!

From my heart to yours.
