Continued Reflections At Six Months

 Paul purchased a used 2004 Chevrolet Silverado truck in 2016.  He would work on a used vehicle as if it were new.  
One morning I walked into his shop and found him standing inside the truck under the hood working on it-I just had to take a picture of him.  He was gifted with the abilty repair vehicles.  
In February of this year (2017) we had a date night.  We were talking about his truck and for some reason I drew a blank at what make and model his truck was he said "It's a Chevy honey"I cherish that conversation.
Here again, I was in the position to make a decision as to what to do with his truck. This truck was very special to Paul, and yet I knew it was not practical for me to hold on to it.  We posted the truck on Craig's List and within hours we had many requests.  One such request came from a young man that lived in Wisconsin. He drove from Wisconsin and took one look at the truck and said he wanted to purchase it.
The following day he and his wife brought a cashier’s check and drove the truck away.  I cried, and cried for days.  A week after the truck was sold, I received a note from the young man that purchased it. He wrote:
"Patty, Thanks again for the truck.  I am grateful for the opportunity to continue the care and respect this vehicle received.  This truck has been a dream of mine so thank you for making it happen.  Sorry for your family's loss"
At that moment, I realized the right decision was made-this truck is bringing joy to this young man and his wife.
I will continue to write about my reflections in days to come.
Thank you for reading, and have a blessed day.
