Something you didn't know about me TUESDAY EDITION
Something you didn't know about me...

Even though I got a drivers license at the age of 16. I was so scared to drive that I didn't drive until after I got married. I was 22 when I started driving. And that was forced:)

A family friend gave us a car which was desperately needed as I was going to be attending DBU in the Fall and had no way to get there. So I go from NOT driving to driving 45 minutes daily each way. I literally prayed the whole way there and back. I didn't even listen to the radio. It was just silence.

I can hardly believe where I'm at now. I drive to all kinds of places. If you had asked me when I was 16, I would have laughed at you.

Praise God. I'm so glad to be a driver now. If I didn't drive I wouldn't have the opportunity to meet new people, visit my family and friends and so much more.

    hehe! My mom didn't drive or get her license until she was 28 and we always lived close enough for us to walk everywhere. I remember my mom use to walk us to and from school. I liked it. I don't know how she did it though.

    Wow! I can't imagine not wanting to drive, I was so ready to get out of the house when I was 16. ;) Glad you don't mind it now though - can you even imagine NOT driving now?

    I remember the days of trying to give you driving lessons on I-30 and in the Showplace parking lot. Hehe. You Rock! Let me know how things are going!

    I hate driving too...we did parent taught drivers ed and I actually cried one time when I had to go learn (even though my parents were totally nice). I'm actually kinda grateful that now we can't afford to have me on our car insurance so I can't/don't have to drive anywhere.
