It's funny but things have once again worked out.  It ended up being a flywheel issue in Michael's truck and not an engine issue. We ended up selling it Sat night and I bought a '97 Town N Country van this morning. It is a really nice van and we got it for $1200 which was a really good deal. Not quite how we expected to spend the weekend but it all worked out in the end. Someone up there is looking out for us because this seems to be the way things go for us. Some really really bad things happen to us, but in the end it all seems to work itself out. Perhaps my motto of "never regret anything" helps. Things happen good and bad. We make choices every moment of everyday, some good, some bad. I can't regret any of it though. Regret means you would change it, but changing one thing would change everything. I wouldn't be the person I am today, I wouldn't be in the place I am today, I wouldn't have the husband and children I have today, and so on. I can learn from mistakes and bad events but never regret or wish to change them.  I love my life, good and bad. I am blessed, even if the blessing come in strange packages.
