When I was a teenager, part of what we were expected to do to finish high school was to complete driver’s education. Somehow I passed with an A even though my parents only took me out one time each to practice.
To their credit, they didn’t have to do so in those days. Also, when I drove with Dad, I clipped the curb with the rear tire while making a left turn, and with Mom, we got stopped by a train, and I kept trying to get going afterwards with the car in second gear. Cough. Splutter. Stop. Repeat. LOL Poor Mom! 😀
Anyway, I didn’t get a lot of practice until quite a few years later. But, it all worked out.
Today, I am thankful to be able to go out and get in the car any time I need to and just drive wherever I need to go!
I’ve had enough lean years to know that this, indeed, is a privilege that not everyone has. It has become such a part of my life, though, that if it were ever to be taken away, I would really miss it a LOT!
Sometimes I have taken this privilege for granted; sorry Lord. But today I praise God that, for now, I am able and have the freedom and provision to drive!
What about you? Are you able to drive? How do you get to the places you need to go?
