Some blessings are just to good to keep to yourself. This weekend, our family took our first new car plunge. We had a 2000 Toyota Sienna with 240K miles. Yep, she’s been good to us and we have been grateful for a long lasting vehicle. We took advantage of a special zero percent interest rate and did it. Can you tell this Momma of four is happy? So is my four-year-old who doesn’t know it will last through her high school years. She just likes the auto sliding doors. Momma likes the auto trunk open and close, keyless entry and surrey on the steering wheel.
Going from a 2000 model to a 2015 model is quite a change, and BLESSING FROM GOD. I just found out my interim job was permanent this week and everything was perfect timing to purchase this new vehicle which we’ve never had in twenty years of our marriage. It’s been quite a frugal journey staying at home with my four children for 14 years. This has been a huge transition back to teaching full-time for my first full year. It’s been a ride and I’m so thankful to God for our frugality, wisdom and freezer cooking gift that I am able to share with thousands daily.
One of the best parts of having this blog is still continuing to write though I work full-time. I may not post as often as I would like on a regular schedule, but I love the fact that so many of you return to view recipes, tips and tricks and ask questions. It amazes me. God amazes me.
I just praise the Lord for allowing us to have an affordable, reliable, awesome new ride for our family of six.
What are your praising God for today?
