Yesterday was our last day with Todd the Toyota. Todd was my gift from precious my mom and dad when I graduated from college. We bought the highlander with 13 miles on it. I have driven it to such fun places... Pittsburgh, the beach, Villa Rica, Nashville, Columbia, and Birmingham. I've loved him. He has loved me.
This post chronicles his last few hours with me...
After waking up early and going to work, we took one last spin through the car wash together.
Here we are getting rinsed...
One last minute wipe before being dried off.
We stopped off at the MED Express for a little snack.
Getting filled up for the last time with me... :-(
Here is how I left him.
One final hug. Goodbye Todd. I hope you have a nice life with your new nice family. You are a great car.
Moment of silence for Todd the Toyota.
The back story... I was talking at a church event about the need for a bigger car for our growing family. I mentioned how much I liked the Honda Odysseys and the Toyota Siennas. I also mentioned needing to sell my 5 seater Hylander. A few days later, a lady in that group messaged me and asked details about my Hylander. Turns out they were valued at about the same amount. SO>>> WE TRADED!
Praise God. His plans are so much better than mine. My plan involved selling Todd on the private market, then looking for a used van, haggling, negotiating and then buying said van.
God's plan: trade with Becky. Her youngest just started at Auburn, my youngest is in a car seat. See... so much better.
