I Couldn’t Do It

No this isn’t my car, but it’s definitely old. 


So we were going to go sell one of our older cars tonight. 


One of the warning lights recently went on and when we took it to the dealer he told us it would be thousands to service it. 


After agonizing about it, we resigned ourselves to just getting rid of it and not investing anymore $$$ in an old car.


We went to the car to empty it and get it ready.


As I watched Dossy cleaning it out, all these memories started racing through my head–seeing Dossy behind the wheel as well the kids. 


Remembering all the good times we had driving here and there together. 


But this was Dossy’s car and it was special to her and I knew it. 


I looked again at her and said, “I can’t do it–let’s just keep it.”


She looked at me–and gave me the biggest smile. 


When we went back inside, she said to me, “You love me!”


And I said, “Of course, I do.”


Now, we get the car fixed–some things you can’t put a price on. 


P.S. Last week, she threatened to move out if I didn’t agree to fix it. 😉
