I am not any of the above, what I am is a loyal, frugal person. I take care of my cars, and I run them until they give up on me. I officially have nothing valuable on me the minute this car got plowed! Between the burglary and this car crash, I can say that I have been stripped off of all my accessories. My Mercedes Benz was my dream car. I had worked very hard and saved for it. A dream that I had to train my brain for years to rid the guilt to get. It was the only place I could have any control over in terms of cleanliness since kids. It was the PREFERRED car that our family always rode in. It was the one that took the most abuse from our family too. And with god's will this Mercedes Benz saved my life!
Last Friday while on my way to the dentist after dropping off my kids. All the cars were in stop and go traffic on HWY 85, more stop than go. At the time the crash happened, I was at a complete stop. I glanced in my rear view mirror and saw a truck coming at me. It wasn't stopping. It kept plowing my Benz into the car in front of me, then I heard my car crunched and the metal crushing. What ran through my head was, does this mean my car is totaled? Am I alive? Is this what people see and feel before their souls take-off?
It was my perfect car, it had everything I wanted on it, but still modestly humble. My panorama sunroof, the only car that ever has this feature. My sports edition package, my black birch wood console. The saddest and most regrettable part is that I would never run out and buy another brand new, special order car like this ever again. It is once in a lifetime experience and it will never be the same the second time.
But yes, at least I had it for nine years, at least I still have my one piece body. I could even say it loved me back - a lot- because it has helped save my life! It was only a few years ago, that I went through another great lost. Again, my life was not in endanger, had it been any other way, a twist of faith, I would not be sitting here. So with all these lost, there is my luck. The luck that none of my family is hurt, nor I. The luck that we still have each other. The pain of this material lost will fade in time.
