He came back about 45 minutes later and said, "Mrs. Lewis, we are going to have to put you in a rental car. There is a leak in your fuel tank."
Now, I had been smelling some strange fumes every now and then in my garage, but just thought that, perhaps, I had spilled a little gas on the car while I was pumping it. No, my morning had not gone as planned, but I was grateful nonetheless. It was a necessary safety measure.
When I explained the situation to the agent at the rental counter, she said that I had been really lucky. I said, "No, not lucky. I'm blessed."
A few months ago, we were in a four-car pile up with our car being hit from the rear. Our car could have caught fire, if hit a certain way, because of the impact. Yesterday, on the news there was a three-car crash - two cars caught fire. One person died. My heart goes out to the family.
So, today, I will tell anyone...I do not believe in luck. I believe in blessings. #grateful
