I know y'all have probably heard me mention that my van broke down a couple months ago. My husband tried and tried to fix it, but there was always something else wrong with it. He finally gave up because we didn't have the money to fix one thing after another.
It was around that time my husband asked my cousin what he was doing with a car that he owned that was broken down and they weren't using. My cousin told him we could have the car since they had a van now. The car is actually newer than my van or my hubby's truck.
So, for the past few months, my husband has been doing a little at a time to try and fix the Neon. He has replaced the water pump, timing belt, and all the other belts. We spent around $200 altogether, and last Friday we were finally able to put it on the road. We still have a few minor things to fix, but we can drive it now!
It is so awesome to be able to go somewhere as a family again. My husband's truck only seats 3, so we couldn't really go anywhere together. I am so thankful that the Lord helped my husband to fix the car! He is so good to us!
