Year of Miracles #42
Yesterday my husband took the van out to run some errands. A short time later he called me to say he was not able to get the van to start (something was wrong with the ignition lock). When I arrived to pick him up I found him there with the van loaded onto a tow truck. While he was waiting for me, the tow truck drove up and unloaded another person's car. Before the tow truck left, my husband asked if he was free to tow our van home. Sure enough he was available.
I have to admit I did not initially like that this had occurred. The expense of it and the frustration of additional problems with the van bothered me. But the more I have thought about it, the more I realize that it was a blessing. This saved us the trouble of trying to: a.) work on the van while it was more than 8 miles from our home and tools; and/or b.) trying to tow the van home with our four-door sedan. Somehow I cannot envision the latter going well.
But I am continuing to pray for something to happen to take care of the van problem once and for all. A lightening strike would be good...
