“Mommy, you’re good at driving.” – DD
These are the words my little girl said while we are driving to town. Honestly, I was surprised how she actually complimented me with my driving. I was really touched. I have no idea where thoughts are coming from because at her young age (3 years old), I don’t think she means it. But I believe her. Of course I told her that I appreciate her compliment and I am doing my best to be a good driver.
See, I am always careful and alert while driving. Whenever we go out-of-town or just go to town, I do my best to drive safely. It is quite difficult for me because, like what they say, all your senses are working when you’re driving. Road travel for me is very tiring. I feel stiffness on my shoulder. My husband told me to relax my arms and hands while on the wheel to prevent muscle stress.
When I feel muscle stress on my shoulders, I let my husband give me a massage. Sore muscles from driving makes me feel irritable and tired. I enjoy driving. But sometimes it’s exhausting, too. No matter how long the drive is, I don’t let fear get over me. I feel confident and relaxed on the wheel. To me, driving is always an adventure.
