I started to think about how one day life will be so great. It will be where we’ll never have to worry about having enough. I know that everybody sees life in a different way, but I tend to wonder what I can take from it as things change. I paid off my first car ever! I remembered when I got that car I had no credit and barely any money. I was riding in a clunker and kept having to put money to fix it. During this time; my two older sons were only 1 and 2. I worked an hour away from where I lived and things just kept getting worse. I was frustrated and about ready to break down.
I decided to keep my faith through it all. I went to several dealerships just to dream that maybe one day I could have a reliable car. I ended up at a dealership and got lucky enough that the sales men was genuinely interested in helping me; rather than trying to make a dollar. There were so many other cars that cost more, that he could of pushed me into; but he listened to my story. He decided that he would do anything possible with what I did have to make a way for what I didn’t. This was a high end dealership and I thought to myself “there’s no way I am going to qualify.” By the blessing of God he made it possible with only $500 and no credit. They accepted my clunker and I was able to drive away with a way to transport my children and myself with no worries.
That was 5 years ago today and several car payments later I am a proud owner of a 2009 Chevy Cobalt. I know silly right. The way I’m so excited over such a simple car. A car that is so insignificant at this time in our high expense world; but means everything to me. It is a reminder to me that working hard for the little things are so rewarding; but going through it this way will keep me humble because I know what it was like to struggle for the small things.
The point of my story is to always stay humble with the little things, because when the day comes that your blessed with the greater things you will learn to appreciate them.
