The independence and the freedom from driving has been a blessing
I started driving in 2015 and it was a lifesaver for me. The flexibility of driving Uber has allowed me to get my daughter to auditions. It has also allowed me to be very present in my daughters' life, involved in her schooling for performances she's in. I can drive in the mornings and then go pick her up from school, take her home, feed her and spend time with her and then go back out to work. It has given me freedom and flexibility, which allows for me to be the best Mom I can be to my daughter. My grandmother got sick and I was also able to be there for her. Allowing me to check on her, bring her food, stop by her place to write a check for her, meet up with the handyman, etc. The independence and the freedom from driving has been a blessing to my life!
