meet Edna...

On this Thankful Thursday, I am going to tell you about one item in my life I recently have been very thankful for. So here she is.
Meet Edna.

Edna is my car, and yesterday I found out she is officially all mine. I made it through 5 years of payments on one vehicle and I am proud to say that it is over.

Edna is not a fancy car, but she does the job right. She is reliable and safe, she can carry lots of people and stuff. And although I might not keep her the cleanest, she is perfect for me.

Last night as I was driving home from dinner, I actually got a little choked up.
Me and Edna have been through a lot. I began purchasing her, with the help of some family members, about five years ago. My other car wasn't going to make it to Texas. She has been with me since then, always reliable, always down for a road trip. She has been on many trips to Texas, a few to Florida and many in between. She has been slept in, thrown up in, and bumped into. She has seen many late nights and early mornings.
She has heard my thoughts, my screams, my crying, and my crazy road rage. She has been packed to the brim, carrying only me and everything I owned. She has carried my saddle for days at a time, taken me to jobs I hated and to friends I loved. She has seen arguments and and make-ups.

So today I am THANKFUL for my car, for 5 years of payments which taught me the importance of being committed to making money, for the memories I have in Edna, and the things I have learned in the past 5 years.

and yes, I did just do an entire post about my car.
