I've a wedding cake to make later in the week, and with that in mind I took my 3 kids, the puppy and my niece on a quick supplies trip to the city.
But our muffler was getting louder and one bump
was enough to knock it free and dragging. Thankfully we were close
enough to my final stop that I got there and went in to get my supplies.
I called my husband for ideas of what to do. . .
checking out I asked the cashier if one of the men who worked there was
handy with cars and would be able to tie my muffler up so that I could
get home. She sent me two guys and in the RAIN that got down and had a
look. Then they drove up with their forklift to lift the car enough that
they could get underneath it.
The kids were waiting
patiently all the time in the car and I was so thankful when the guys
were able to secure the muffler with some wire. They both also refused
the money I offered them for their help. I thanked them profusely for
being so helpful so I could drive home. And told my son that that is the
way men need to help those in need- not expecting anything in return.
began the seemingly long drive home with a VERY loud car- and me
avoiding the gas as much as humanly possible in order to drive oneself
forward. It was a long, embarrassing drive since my car was as loud as a
race car. and my son was sure everyone was scared by us since they
seemed to be all driving around us ( I was just driving slowly to avoid
the gas). :)
Thank God for:
-sending us men to help.
-that it broke in place not far from our destination.
-that we got home ok.
-for HIS goodness to us.
