>I had the privilege at one point in my life to have a car given to me. It was a Gold and rusted pontiac sunbird(Imagine all that beauty). It was basically a car that no one would ever want… That is, unless you had no car. When you have no car, even the ugliest one on the road is the greatest thing in the world. You can go to work and make money so you can fix it when it eventually breaks (yea it will). The windows probably wont work and the air, air whats that! Your lucky if the heat works. I guess I can say that i have been there. I know how it feels to only have one car. I know how it feels when that car breaks and the desperate feeling you get hoping that it isn’t a major problem. I have also had the opportunity to give a car away and help pay for another. What makes it more amazing for me is that I know how it feels to get that (busted) car that you couldn’t live without.

>Today is me and Rach’s anniversary, and Saturday was her birthday. Okay well it would be if she was still alive. It would be 7 years. Wow that is a long time and 3 years without her is just as long.

Of course its all hypothetical because she is far better off where she is now. But loss is something that really grabs your attention in life. It could be the loss of a friend or the most annoying kind of loss, Losing your keys.”I KNOW I JUST HAD THEM A MINUTE AGO!!!” Either way it really makes you pay attention to the way that you are living. It makes you think about your habits and all the little things that you do that have become a part of your life. And the biggest thing it does is make you realize what you need to change. When i lost Rach I knew the thing I needed to do was to appreciate the time I have with those I love. It made me realize that I don’t have forever and neither do they so better make the most of it. And also to live my life that it points everyone to Christ and His love. Another thing I now know because of it, is that God is in control of every situation. He took her and though her life was short she made an impact to those close to her. At her funeral there was so many people the room was packed and everyone was telling stories about how great she was. That was awesome and it was a time of celebration because her suffering was over and the next time we see her…wow that will just be awesome.
