Bill surprised me with a Ford Focus four years ago. I am grateful for my little car. It was my first brand new vehicle. In the past, we had always gotten new vehicles that Bill drove. They suited him and his needs, as well as family needs. I wanted a Focus "someday". Bill had this one planned out.
My race red car is pretty cute, too. Bill got it with the special black wheels. It looks sporty and matches the black interior, too. It isn’t all about looks, though. Sure, “she” is also fast, responsive, and fun to drive. But, I am really thankful for her because of all of the things that I can do with her help.
I am alone when Bill is on the road. He used to be gone 4-6 weeks at a time. Even now, he is gone all week. I needed a car that would be safe and dependable. My cute little car can help me do it all. I can still go to appointments, run errands, and make trips to the vet clinic. I am pleased to say that I can even get four big cat crates in there with room left over. I can even squeeze in a Sheltie or two. Trust me; I know.
I am thankful to be as independent as I am. It isn’t always easy, and a good car is essential. I am especially pleased that my car is a cute little, reliable Ford Focus. Oh, and thanks, Bill!
