Writing this today reminds me of when I used to write every single day & about such simple things to be grateful for. All feels right in the world!
Today, and every day, I am thankful for my car. I was talking with a friend the other day about times when we didn’t have our cars for an extended period of time. For example, when I got into an accident on college move in day and my parents had to bring my car back to Arkansas to be repaired. I didn’t have my car for almost a month. Having grown up in a place with NO public transpiration and everything being so close, the idea of walking or taking the bus seemed so foreign at the time.
Now, in present day I find myself using my car way more than I probably ever have. A lot of the time, I’m commuting an hour each way between work and home. Some days that is frustrating, but most days, especially recently, I have been thankful to have a car and thankful to have the time. Some people are not even fortunate enough have any mode of transportation but their own two feet.
I have also been using this time In my car to do a lot of talking to God and lifting up different prayer requests to him. I have realized, especially with this weird life stage I am in, that spending this time with Him is one of the best things I can do. It beats worrying or stressing out over things I have little to no control over. I highly recommend that you do this, too, if you have any type of commute during your work day. I’m so thankful that God is there and he is happy to listen!
Also, let’s not forget that I have clothes and shoes and cameras and food and basically my whole life in my car at the moment. When people ask where I am living these days I usually reply with a laugh… “basically out of my car” because it is so true!! Thank goodness I have this space that is my own that gets me to and from safely…I don’t know what I would do without it.
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.
