Thankful Thursday- Transportation Tribute

Alliteration at it's finest:)

This Thursday I am grateful for planes, trains, and particularly -automobiles! I often overlook the fact of how awesome it is to have a van to transport our whole family in. Honestly, who could have envisioned so many years ago that people today would be able to climb into an oddly shaped container which would move by itself, at incredible speeds, taking said people to incredible distances and destinations? It still makes me laugh today and I know it's possible.

I sit in a comfortable chair, push a little pedal, hold onto a wheel, and the ground disappears beneath me. How convenient!

Can I visit my parents who are 20+ miles away for the evening? Easy!

Vacation to a completely different state, hundreds of miles away in mere hours. Sure! And even less time if you want to fly. Fly?! Seriously, how cool is it that we can fly!? Through the air!

I love living in the age of easy transportation.

What are you thankful for today?
