I am older and wiser now.

I will continue to celebrate my life while I have my life. I may be an ordinary person, but I have faith in God, and I have hope for my future too. I try to help my mom more around the house and with laundry, cooking and grocery shopping. I know I can drive on my own. Although I am in my late 30s I will not judge myself. I will keep getting driving lessons. My mom agreed to help me pay. I went through a driving school because I knew a professional driving instructor was the best way to go. I have a driving lesson next week. I am hoping next Spring or next summer I can get a preowned car of my own. I need a cute little SUV. I like the Honda HR-V models I’ve seen. I also like KIA Soul and KIA Sorento models at KIA Motors. I will retest and take the road test again early next year. I pray I can pass the road test on the second try. I can’t go over 10 miles per hour when I take the road test. The road test examiner gave me reasons I failed on November 30th. I’ll get some help paying for driving lessons. I’ll set up four or five more driving lessons until I feel ready to retake my road test. I am enjoying my driving lessons too. Life feels different in the driver’s seat. New Jersey has a seat belt law where the driver and all passengers in the car need to wear seat belts and buckle up.
