On sunny days, my three sons and I would walk to the park near our home to swing and climb and play. A one car family, our outings were a respite of joy! We were blessed to have a car that ran but well, it wasn’t a very nice looking car. It was a little dinged up, four-door sedan and I longed to have a mini-van.
I remember one day watching as a shiny green mini-van pulled up to the park and my heart filled with an ache best expressed with these words, ‘What would my life be like if I drove a car like THAT? Surely everything would be much, much better!”
