Those (car)efree days
Gratitude this week comes in the form of four wheels, air-con comfort together with a personal chauffeur. We got a CAR!
We certainly didn't buy one, I stand by all that I said in this post. We certainly cannot and will not choose to spend on such a luxury. However, we are tip-toeing into the Third Trimester now and there's a lot that needs to be done. Shelving, furniture and all the other nitty gritty of preparing even a simple nursery. Many kind mums have been encouraging me to quickly resolve these things before I hit week 32 and I'll be so big it'll be tiring to even walk, but it would be hard to do these without transport.
Our fears were premature. As in the week past, we've had three offers from family and friends to loan us their own cars. One even went to the extent of volunteering to ferry us to and from our errands. Without us even saying a word, people have been thinking of ways to help us and for their thoughts alone we are extremely grateful.
So here we are, on the brink of the final lap in this pregnancy marathon. Armed with a car to collect all these wonderful second-hand baby love that others have offered. And once again, I am left humbled and grateful.
Hope you are all having a restful Saturday with all this rain~
