Thankful Thursday: Family

A day late, I know. But I was waiting to get a picture. This week I'm thankful for family. About 4 weeks ago our van died. It was our only vehicle so it put us in a bind. Thankfully we have family close by: my family across the street and hubby's not 5 minutes away. I don't know what we would have done without them (and hubby's friend from the ship yard). Without them, hubby would not have been up to get to work (both jobs). I wouldn't have been able to get to my newest job running the church nursery. We would not have been able to make our weekly chiro appointments. And we wouldn't have been able to go grocery shopping. I'm extremely thankful for their help.

I'm also very thankful for my brother. He's a mechanic. He helped hubby find out what was wrong with the van and that we couldn't fix it at home. He then helped me sell the van. Hubby was working last weekend and I would not have been able to explain what was wrong with the van like my brother. My brother was a key part in buying a new vehicle too. We ended up looking at Jeeps. My brother knows Jeeps inside and out; his Jeep is his baby. He went with us while looking at potential Jeeps. He is why I know we made a good choice on the one we bought. It does need a little work but not much. That's why I had to wait till this morning to get a picture of our Jeep. We borrowed a trailer from dad's work last night and my brother used his truck to tow the Jeep home. All it needs is a water pump and it'll be on the road. Hubby will do that tonight!

So, good bye van. Hello Jeep!
