The Little Blue Metro That Could

This one's for you, Emma!!! Love ya, Dear!!

Once upon a time...

There was a little, blue metro who carried the family of four here and there and everywhere. The little, blue metro carried over hill, over dale and over Peter's Mountain regularly in rain, in snow, in fog, and in sleet. The little, blue metro was part of the family of four, more like a brother than a means of transportation.

Then one day, the Mama was driving the little, blue Metro and smash, crash into a big, fancy Camaro...ouch!!! You see, Mama was making fun of another vehicle on whose windshield said, "Won't Last Long" and she wasn't watching where she was driving. NEVER, EVER MAKE FUN OF ANYONE OR ANYTHING WAS THE LESSON MAMA LEARNED THAT DAY!!!
But...the little, blue, Metro that could continued to carry the family of four here and there and everywhere. The little, blue metro continued to carry over hill, over dale and over Peter's Mountain in rain, in snow, in fog, and in sleet.

Then one hot day in July crash, smash!!! Oh no, the little, blue Metro are you gone????





No!!! They worked and fitted and painted and shined until the little, blue Metro was ready to carry the family of four again.








The moral of this story is clear...never, never give up on the little, blue Metro even when it seems he is beyond repair (especially since he gets 50 miles to the gallon).

Thank you, Kourtney and Mike for the fantastic work!!! We love our little, blue Metro that could!!!! Follow the link to see some awesome custom cars.

Thank you for this post! It's just an amazing story, not to mention the way you wrote it (a remake of The Little Train That Could)... Wowo, the Metro looks as good as new!

Hope you're doing great these days, Beautiful Grace.

Hi BG,
I was still editing some parts of my my latest post on my blog when I noticed that there was already 1 comment at the end! It made me feel good to know that we were somehow connecting to each other on real time! Yes, what you wrote is true. Some precious relationships need protection and preparation to be healed. And yes, maybe the best time for these to happen will be in heaven. Have a great week ahead of you!!

Wow, it looks as good as new! My husband drove his grandparents' VW Dasher until someone ran into it and cracked the gas tank. Alas, there was nothing we could do at that point. :(

Oh that is too funny. And 50MPG is a huge blessing these days. Especially with your son's long commute.

The car looks fabulous. God has blessed you with the Little Blue Metro that Could. :)
