Could have been so much Worse,...

April 29th, 2009 at 08:17 am

I got the phone call that every mother dreads yesterday. My son wrecked the car. I jumped up out of bed and starting walking down the street...he didn't even make it off our street. He had my daughter in the car with him. He hit some loose gravel, then a pothole, and the car went out of control.(yes he was going too fast...) But the car ended up upside down at the bottom of a 20 ft drop. Both kids(was taking my daughter to school as well) were able to make it out of the car with no injuries...not even a scratch!!!

Do you think it is possible that a car has a "spirit"? I am not a particularly religious person and I don't mean to offend anyone...but this car...I feel like it was sent to us to take care of this family. It has over 220000 miles. The only thing that has ever gone wrong was a hose on the transmission. Easy fix and as a single mom for years, an easy fix is the best kind to have! I have never been one to get regular oil changes and tune ups. In all fairness, this car has been abused. A few weeks ago, I bought the explorer(some of you know that I was deeply upset by that purchase) so that my son could drive the escape. Now I know why that purchase was made! They were in the escape and didn't have a scratch. I feel like this car gave its life to protect my family. I know that sounds wierd...but that is what it feels like. I am sad to see this car go.

The only money I spent yesterday was the tow charge. I should be able to submit it to insurance and be reimbursed for some of it.

    I absolutely believe your car has a spirit and is attached to your family. My 17 yr old car never cost me a dime. And treated it very badly. My 7 yr old Saturn was so good to me. The week after I sold it- it was in a car wreck. My cars love me and I love them.
