Grateful

So, how do you thank two friends whose favors you could never return? I am feeling exceedingly grateful today. This week, my friend MusicMaker took two days out of her hectic family and work schedule to drive me 8 hours away to a nearby state. In that state lives a friend and her family who used to be our neighbors. This loving friend, SaltOfTheEarth, gave me, that's right, gave me, her car. It's a 1995 Toyota Camry, it has 108K miles on it and it runs just great.

I am in awe. I am amazed. I hope I can somehow pay this forward someday. Now Starman doesn't have to walk in the rain and sleet and snow to pick up the girls from school while I am at work. Now we can get the girls to different places at the same time. Now, I don't have to drive a gas-guzzling minivan 90 miles twice a week just to get to the church. Wow.

Thank you, MusicMaker. Thank you, SaltOfTheEarth and your families, too. What could I ever do to deserve such wonderful friends?
