I got my learner's permit!!!!!

I had my first driving lesson with a professional instructor, which means that I can now drive with a licensed driver over 21. I'll be eligible to take the actual driving test to obtain my license in mid-May.

My brother now has his actual driver's license. My parents let him get his learner's permit right after I was injured in the spring. My dad asked me if I had a problem with their letting my brother get his permit when I was physically unable to drive. It was difficult to give my OK;I wanted to tell Dad to make my brother wait, but I knew it would be a very selfish thing to do, so I bit the bullet and said to let him take the test. It was painful to watch him drive before I was able, but it was just one of those things I had to do.

Matt, I'm waiting with baited breath to read your next work of fiction.

Rebecca, I hope you're OK . Send out a smoke signal or somthing when you're able to do so.

  1. Well done, Alexis. And good luck with the driving lessons.

    The story is there on my Notamormon blog. It is a story set in Christmas week. And is based on something my father told me that happened in Birmingham, when he was a young man.
