Yay!

I am happy to report that he passed! Thank God! He could get up to 3 wrong and pass and he got 3 wrong. He says he spent an hour taking the test. He really took his time so he would pass. I'm so happy that's done with. He said now he can get back to living his life that he doesn't have this hanging over his head and that he's going to go to the movies to see "Mary Poppins." Thank God.

Just prayed for him. It's hard to think about losing that independence.

So I saw my Dad yesterday for Christmas, and there is something bothering him. Here in CA, once you turn 70, you have to take the driver's license written exam every 5 years to keep your licence. He is 84 this year, and he's taken the test twice in the last 10 years and passed. This year, he took the test in Nov. and failed. Then he took it earlier this month and failed again. So now he is really rattled. He got a temporary license and he goes back Jan. 17th at 9:20 am to take it again. He came really close to passing last time. He got 4 wrong and you can only get 3 wrong. He wants to get his motorcycle license too, but we both don't think that's going to happen again, depending on what the DMV says. So he is super nervous and scared that he won't pass. He has really bad anxiety, so I know what he's feeling, but I'm just praying for him all the time now, and I would ask that you do too, particularly on the 17th.
