The last time I drove by myself with a license was 3 years, 8 months and 25 days ago.
Today feels like freedom. Self reliance. Being able to drive to get a coffee or to wherever I need to go and not relying on others.
I definitely won’t be driving like I once did, I’m not there yet and don’t know if I ever will be. But I can drive to pick up my son at school or drop him off, which his grandparents have been so great at doing since we don’t live in district.
This is just a huge step and accomplishment and I am ready to drive on my own and know that and know I am safe to do so. I cried when I was telling my husband. It’s a big deal and taken a lot to get here and I know I am so lucky to be able to drive.
