I am sitting in a motel room that cost me $70, ten extra for my dog, and trying not to sob. You see, my 2002 Kia Spectra thought it would take this time to crap out and kill herself. That's right, a rod shot through the oil pan and the engine is shot. Stranded, a man stopped by the road side, fire extinguisher in hand, and put out the fire that was caused by the spewing oil in Spectra's engine. Little did I know that that was what happened, all I knew was that I smelled something funny, and then smoke began to fill my cabin. A few patrol cars pulled up and the cops took down my info, nice as they can be, I assure you. After that, dear Mike came and towed my car to his shop where he said that it was completely dead.
I am only stranded for the night, luckily. My family from where I was headed are coming to get me. I cannot stress how grateful I am to Mike and the police of the Navajo city for helping a poor 19 year old girl in a bind. And a special thanks to the man who stopped to put out the fire, if it weren't for him, all my stuff would be gone. And I wouldn't have my laptop with me to be telling you all this. I do believe that God was with me in the sense that I got so far, a little over half way to the friends I will be staying with. And he was with me so that I didn't run off the road and crash.
All in all, I am torn... I wish I could have made the whole journey myself, but as it is, I just have to sit here and wait for help. Thanks for all the support, and... Well... Thanks for being here. I love you guys, I'm so glad I met Papa (fkac) and he gave me my break. I really am grateful for all the things I do have, I just wish things would have turned out better.
