Why We are Thankful for Our Cars

Why We are Thankful for Our Cars

As we head into this holiday season, there are so many things to be grateful for and to find gratitude in, but we often leave out our cars. It’s easy to take owning and driving a car for granted, and it can even sound a little materialistic, but in reality, car ownership affords us many luxuries from the simple to the extreme. If you are fortunate enough to own a car, that means you don’t have to ride a bus or ask friends or family for rides. There is a lot to be grateful for when you own a car. Owning a car means freedom.
