|My High School and early married car....it got 50 MPG!!!|
As I walked out to my daughter's rental car I grabbed the keys and said, "I am driving." Within minutes of crawling into the drivers side of this compact car I was taken away from all the businesses of life.
This season of life holds more facets than I can process at times. The joy of answered prayers along with the joys of the struggles have left me discombobulated. I just can't seem to get all my ducks in a roll. This is why I know my Heavenly Father delights in our giggles.
My world just fell away as I drove down the street with continued soul giggles. My daughter didn't get it...I had left the planet emotionally. I was in dream world. I turned to her almost in tears saying, "I know this sounds so stupid. I don't want diamonds, I don't need a trip to Europe, or fancy clothes, but every so often there is something that I really would enjoy. I WOULD REALLY ENJOY a CAR like THESE!" She thought I had lost it. I promise you if I had the money the salesman at the local FIAT store wouldn't even need to try it would be SOLD!!
We jetted around town all day in this matchbox size car. I U-turned in the middle of a six lane road leaving my daughter gasping for breath..."Oh My I am Going to DIE!" I laughed that mischievousness laugh and replied, "I know how to drive little cars!"
My teenage years of driving were before my eyes. If anything could make you feel years and years...well lets be honest, decades younger, this little car had. My days of driving around my home city in a small compact car brought all my experience back.
My children have only experienced me behind a HUGE SUV...the larger the better for a our large brood, but now our family is smaller, I don't need a tank. Do I need a small car like this...NO!, but wouldn't it be fun?
I think the Lord looks down and says, "My daughter needs to giggle....just give her the keys!"
Make mine RED with a sunroof and please put some eyelashes on her!
