Theresa has been driving for nearly 12 years. She is using her vintage F-150 to drive her two sons in their school. The classes of her son start at 7:30 A.M and dismisses at 3:30 P.M. Theresa is a single parent that is why she also took the responsibility of the duties of her ex-husband. Theresa was always being mocked by her elder son because she drives slowly. “Mom why do you drive so slow? Did grandma fell in love with the turtles when she was pregnant with you?” her elder son joked at her. “Yeah we have to wake up so early so you will have more time for driving to avoid being late in school, look at those vehicles mom they are overtaking us without respect” said her younger son. Theresa was not answering her children since they asked of this but this time she taught them a lesson. “Listen both of you, to be honest with you I am scared of driving but I have no choice because your father leaves us. I can be as fast as those cars that you’ve seen but I am taking care of our lives. I’ve been driving slowly for years but there was never a time that you two have been late. It doesn’t matter if we are the slowest vehicle as long as we are safe and you are not late” said Theresa. Her two sons did not say anything anymore. Few more minutes to be in school and they saw a blue car wrecked because of bumping the post. The children was scared about what they saw, they now understand why their mom is slow on driving.
In life you don’t have to be the fastest in driving or in doing something. For as long as you keep focus and disciplined you can reach your destination no matter how slow the pace is.
