One moment ahead of falling apart that’s how it feels to be a single mom. Two years ago I sold my family home. Two years ago my ex and I divorced and I lost my husband and my mechanic. Now I have a car with a trunk that doesn’t open and a hubcap held on by zip ties. I need a 1500 dollar part for my car and I do not have the money. I literally get panic attacks driving my car to work. If my car breaks down and I can’t make it to work, then I cannot pay for my kids to live. I did not know we could be so close to being lost, so close to crashing, and so close to an edge I did not know existed. A new car could help me not get lost, literally and figuratively. A new car could help me get to work without hyperventilating the car is going to break–or maybe that I am. A new car could help this family feel like it is going somewhere, instead of nowhere. A new car might not do all that but it might. It might be the moment we need to have to keep going. Thank you for giving a gift of hope. Even if it is not to me.
