At the end of last year I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve this year while Nevaeh (my youngest) started school. It's all there in my bucket list above this post! I am well on my way to achieving most of my goals and today I can proudly cross of getting my Learners.
It's been a long wait but today, with a lot of help from the amazing man upstairs I passed the Learners Parmit Test at VicRoads in Sunshine, Victoria.
As I walked in I was packed with nerves. I filled out the application form and went up to the desk to apply. The lady behind the counter explained that I was actually booked in for next Monday. Realising my mistake I pleaded with her to allow me to get it done today. She made me take a seat while she went to speak to her supervisor. About 20 minutes later she called my name and directed me to another part of VicRoads. I was sure I was going to be turned down and asked to leave. I asked God to be with me seeing as everyone else applying had their friends and family with them. I felt very alone. I waited for my name to again be called where I was asked to pay a cancellation fee of $16. To be totally honest I wasn't sure I had $16 and told her that. She wasn't empathetic. I rummaged through my purse and to my surprise I had enough change to pay her. I thanked God quietly as I made my way back to the testing area. They called my name almost immediately and put me in front of Computer 6 to begin my test.
There were two questions I didn't fully understand, and I thought to myself, "I'd better pass after all the effort they have gone to for me." but I gave it my best shot.
After completing it I sat down to wait for my results. One of the ladies behind the counter asked if I had finished already to which I replied "I just hope I passed". The wait was the worst part. But again my name was called and they congratulated me and said I had passed. They called me Mel as they asked me to meet them around the corner for my photo. It was totally God. He knew how alone I felt there and with them calling me Mel it was like my besty was right there with me. I smiled for the photo, I thanked the girls behind the counter and walked out feeling so very very proud of myself.
I called my 2 besties and messaged the third as I walked back to the train station.
I posted a FB status and recieved a massive amount of support.
62 likes (and counting), 16 replies and a few messages.
I am so thankful to have such a great support.
I may have felt alone today but my heart is now so so full!
I have my learners..
