Today I am thankful that most of our needs are met locally and that our town is self contained. From the grocery store to kids’ pediatrician., my dentist to mechanic, our chauffeuring is within the town. What a big relief it is to spend so little time on the road..! But even this limited driving tires us when we have to switch gears from school activities to extra activities. So very glad that it is not often that we have to step out of our town boundaries.
