‘Can’t I just take the car and go on my own?’ he asked.
I’d already forgotten.
My son got his driver’s license yesterday.
I no longer need to drive him everywhere.
Now all my son is going to want from me is my car and uh, my money.
What happened next?
1. I gave my boy some money to buy himself some lunch and I handed him my car keys.
2. I tried to keep myself busy so I wouldn’t worry about him.
3. All the time my son was gone, I prayed that he would drive carefully and return home to me safely.
And he did.
But those steps I just listed?
I’m probably going to be repeating them a lot over the next few months.
