Birthdays are a wonderful time in our lives, whether its ours, are childrens or our friends. They are a time to reminisce and a time to celebrate new accomplishments. Yesterday was my daughter Kaycies 17th birthday and it was a very emotional day for me. She was going to get her drivers license. I remember what a great feeling that was to me and I think to so many people. You finally gain your independence you can come and go whenever you want and dont have to wait for someone to take you. What a cool time in your life!
I couldnt sleep Sunday night because I was so nervous for her and I was so torn. I wanted her to pass her driving test but I wanted to keep my little girl too. Of course she seemed to be so cool about the whole thing it was just another milestone, another step on her way to growing up.
Monday turned out to be a dreary, rainy, cold day but we got ready and headed out.
The person who was going to administer her driving test was a woman (to her great relief). Her cousins had prepared her well with stories of their experiences all involving big, bald, mean old men. So when she saw a small blond woman she was immediately at ease. As she and the woman drove off I was standing there in the cold by my self and there was another officer standing there. He yelled hey was that Kaycie I shook my head yes and he started talking to me
I guess he could tell I was upset.
Anyway about 5 minutes later she pulled back up and she was grinning from ear to ear. She had done it She Had Her DRIVERS LICENSE!!!! Hurray and Help Me LORD!!!
