don't blame the wife for calling it my 1st love.
but when i finally decided to trade-in, i elected for something i thought i would not be so attached to - a common japanese car that i could maintain
so, when i was involved in an accident recently, i thought i really had gotten over my car-attachment obssession because i really didn't feel any sort of heartache, considering it was just bought last year. seriously. i was just glad everyone in the car was safe & that i could still drive away after the collision.
but when i sent the car to the workshop today, i had a bit of reservation. well, ok, more than a bit. we have all heard of unscrupulous mechanics who pass off inferior parts as original & do slip-shod repairs. when i left the workshop, i've not felt this "loss" since my daughter left for boarding school. like a part of me is gone.
perhaps it's just my personality & not because of the car. i still keep my old handphones, cameras & clothes. i just couldn't let them go, so much so that the wife called me a hoarder. that's true because, frankly, there's just too much junk in the house!!
in biblical terms, my heart would be in the wrong place.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. matt 6:21
