I am frustrated with the way things are rolling down my hill that I call LIFE!! In the last two weeks I have endured the stress of looking for a car for my wife. We found a car and then it needed work on it immediately (which I negotiated into the selling price)
We picked up the car from my mechanic @ 6pm on Thurs 4/30 and my wife was hit by a car @8pm that night. The collision was so hard it ripped the passenger rear door OFF and pushed the frame in almost 6 inches. I received a call from my insurance company yesterday stating that they are totalling the car out. To make things worse somewhere along the line the title was washed of a previous accident that makes it a salvage vehicle.
Now here is where the frustration really begins. I am told because it was a salvage, that they are going to pay out 1/3 of what I paid for it only ten days before.
I know that God's hand were in this to keep my family safe. My daughter was supposed to go and we decided not to let her go b\c she was tired and cranky at supper. My sister(who is 5 months pregnant) was in the car with my wife no more than ten minutes before. My wife or the High School age girls driving the other car were not permanently hurt. If we had not picked up the car, my wife would have been driving our SUV and probably would have killed both of the girls in the other car. Even though the girl drove through the Stop sign it would have grief stricken us all.
I praise God for our safety and am hoping now that he will work a miracle in our financial situation. He has a path laid before me and even though it may be hidden right now, I know it will come out good in the end.
