Once I became a parent I quickly realized how amazing my parents truly are.
Now teaching our eldest to drive I am realizing my parents are not only amazing, but are rock stars. I was a horrible driving student.. They were sssooo patient. My Mom spending long hours out in the cold acting like a pole so I could learn to parallel park. My Dad calmly sipping coffee and coaching gently (Except that one time I made at right turn at 45 mph without breaking. HA!) He would also say Terra Firma at the end of each lesson and kiss the ground. :o)
Our eldest son is really a good student and an aware driver. Still I find myself clutching the dashboard and sing songing the phrase "You are a little too far to the right.." repeatedly. And praying. A lot.
He is doing most of his driving on Clifford the 15 passenger van. My parents had big station wagons and said if we could learn to drive them we could drive anything. Little did they know one day my "ride" would be so big.
Thanks Mom and Dad for all you have done.
And please Jesus..take the wheel.
