Do you like pina collada and getting caught in the rain?
This song has been stuck in my head ALL DAY.
It has been a good week and I feel so blessed. I keep knocking on wood because I don’t want these happy feelings to be gone.
My car that I have had for five years..was giving me alot of issues. It was a 2001 Lexus RX300. I purchased her for $4900 five years ago. I put some money into the car because of the maintenance like oil changes and replacing the brakes.
But, this past year..it started having an electrical problem and as much as I loved her..I knew it was time for a new ride. But, honestly, I wanted to drive her for another five years but once you have an electrical problem….it costs A LOT of money.
I have been on the car hunt for about two months but I was in no hurry because my car was still running.
I had a budget too.
My sister argued that I needed to spend more money. My dad argued that I should purchase a Camry from the dealer because they are the best cars in his opinion. My brothers told me to wait till they find something in the auction for a good deal.
I was lost. I didn’t want to spend a lot but I wanted something nicer at the same time. So my sister stopped helping me because of my not so willingness to spend more money. My brothers were still searching and my dad kept repeating himself.
I ended up finding a car that was exactly what I wanted. It was a little past my budget but it was fine. It is a 2009 Lexus RX350. I wished it was a little newer but now I think Stacy Lucy or Stacy Lu is perfect. I love her so much. I truly feel God’s blessing. Thank you Allah. I found the car alone on my own and had my brother go with me to check it out.
I have been playing the pina collada song in my car and just enjoying life.
It felt like it was meant to be. The previous owner even lowered the price for me a little bit. The DMV which usually takes over an hour and a half..only took thirty mins. My insurance is basically the same even though it is a newer car. I guess when God has something destined for you..he just makes it easy.
