I am sure that some of my faithful blog readers must sometimes wonder about my state of mind. I can't blame anything on chemo brain right now! So, that being said....for Day 15 - I am thankful I learned how to drive!
My mom never drove, neither did my grandmother. I could not wait until I was old enough - 15 1/2 to take Driver's Ed. I had never been behind the wheel of a car and when we went to the "driving range", I about cleared the place out of cones! But I finally got the "feel" for the wheel and I learned how to drive. A whole new world opened up to not only me, but my mother. I remember the first time she went with me to McDonalds. You would have thought we were at a 5 star restaurant. My mom got on the phone that night and called all her friends to inform them of the fantastic event that had just happened!
Honestly, I think about how wonderful it is to have the freedom that driving brings often when I am in the car. Now, it is not as enjoyable as it once was, with all the traffic, but I still wouldn't trade a moment of it!
