Gratitude Challenge: Day 30

This is the last day for the Gratitude Challenge over at Garden of Learning. I have enjoyed thinking each day about what I am grateful for and sharing it with so many new friends.

Today I am grateful for so many things, but mainly for having my car back and working beautifully. For the last couple weeks my car has been shaking and shimmying every time I hit the brakes and in the last few days I even felt like the wheel might fly off. Turns out, that feeling of the wheel getting ready to fly off, was because the wheel really was getting ready to fly off. Our mechanic said that it would not have been much longer before the lug bolts sheered off and the wheel went with them. Thank you, God; for keeping us safe. I am also very grateful to have a reliable mechanic that knows me and my family, not cheap; but completely honest and trustworthy. They never suggest unnecessary work and always do the repairs quick and as affordable as possible. They work on my parents cars, my cars and soon my kids cars; if you're in the KC, Missouri area, definitely look up Summit South Auto.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this month of gratitude. Head over to Garden of Learning to see what others are grateful for.

I'm glad you are all safe and God gave you the foresight to take it in for repairs vs ignoring it til a more convenient time. I remember something similar happening when I was a child...oh soooo many years ago hehe...my parents' car had hubcaps, and mom kept hearing this rattling sound. She decided, with 4 kids in the car to protect, she drove it to a tire shop...sure enough, all but one lugnut had come off and was rolling around inside that hubcap. We can be grateful for those little annoying noises, they can save lives.
