Ode to a Jeep
A Jeep — what a mundane topic? Rather, a Miracle, I say. And not one to be taken lightly.
My Jeep was down for repairs this past week — good thing we have a back-up vehicle. Living here in the mountains, it just kind of comes with the landscape. Especially when our family’s combined mileage add up to over a million!
(My husband’s ’97 Toyota Camry will soon turn 600,000 miles — my ’99 Jeep Grand Cherokee passed 300,000 this year. Back-up ’90 SUV, 270,000.)
But we love our true-grit older vehicles.
Here’s a poem from my Journal about my beloved Jeep — written three years ago, when it was down with a blown engine. Quite a Miracle, really!
At the time I had no extra money and absolutely no idea where I’d get the $6,000 for the rebuild. And yet, by applying my Life Strategies (see The Assignment: Guide to Greater Happiness), by staying in Gratitude and taking Action, my Jeep was fixed and back on the road in just six weeks.
Hallelujah! (May God also bless the backup vehicle.)
So here’s a small Ode to my Good ‘Ol Jeep. : ~ ))
My life support
my time capsule
My climate control
my meal ticket
my technological revolution
my manufacturing plant
my store front
My safety net
