On Wednesday, I left the YMCA and was going to the local library. I had stopped at a stop sign and proceeded through the intersection. I had almost made it through when I heard that familiar crashing noise and before I knew what hit me, I was spinning in a circle. I hit the brake and was stopped by the sidewalk curb.
Don't get alarmed. It was just a fender-bender. But at the moment is seemed much bigger. I wasn't injured, and neither was the woman who hit me.
But my poor blackponi wasn't as fortunate.
I'm ssooo thankful that this accident was just a fender-bender and not something much worse....
No one was hurt....PTL!
I have to tell you though..
I love this car.
I almost can't look at her boo boo!
I know I know..
You're thinking Its just a car! ...
a material possesion.
But it isn't just a car to me.
She's a symbol of so much more.
You see, as a teenager, my folks bought me my first car from the car auction. It looked something like this...
(found this photo on the internet)
It was a 1969 fast back Mustang. It was used hard. And of course my car wasn't quite as nice as the one in the picture above. It had a ton of mechanical problems.
But...it was my first car...
near and dear to my heart.
Fast forward to 2003...
Rumor had it that Ford would be making a retro style Mustang.
I had seen pictures, and was anxious to see the real deal.
It was in 2003, that I was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML).
I spent many months in the hospital getting Chemo to kill off the blood cells and then wait for my blood count come back.
It was a difficult time. And when the blood count numbers would bottom out, I would get to feeling really whimpy.
It was then, that my sweet husband would talk me through it. At one point, he promised to buy me a new Mustang if I got better.
Well, I did get better!
He bought me my dream car!
See, I told you she was more than just a car.
She's a symbol of
and a husband's LOVE!
So now you know...
the rest of the story!
Filled with gratitude,
