Miracles Happen

Well, maybe just blessings ... 

You know that old saying -- You don't miss the water till your well runs dry.  Well if you are like me, you don't think about how often you look in the sideview mirrors on your car ... until you have none!  Just add this to that last depressing post. 

My husband's car has been in the body shop for over a week to repair a bumper damaged by road debris and last Friday I ripped the driver-side rear-view mirror off my car pulling out of the garage. (DH had parked the car the day before so I'm going to blame his poor parking skills!)  We taped it back together well enough that I could get to my local tire service place.  I was trying to avoid a one-hour drive on the interstate to the nearest Toyota dealer.  But, more importantly, I needed a quick fix because I'll be driving to Quilt Camp in West Virginia on Sunday.

Bless their hearts, a couple guys tried for over an hour to get the innards back into the mirror while another guy was on the phone looking for parts.  To no avail.  So I was sent home to search for another source for a replacement mirror.  In the meantime, all I could see was my door handle and the road surface!  

Well, the stars aligned!  The Ford body shop that was repairing hubby's car was able to order the mirror.  They called yesterday to say that, not only was his car ready to go, but the mirror had arrived.  So we dropped my car off this morning, took the newly repaired car to Lowes and the grocery, and the mirror had been installed by the time we returned.

Gotta love personal service in a small town!


  1. Hooray for the stars aligning! And for people who figure things out and get them fixed!

  2. I love it when things come together. Hopefully this will be it for your car woes.

  3. Things are looking up and getting back on track! Funny I don't like the way Tony parks our car either and feel it throws me off with the backing out.
