After many tries, Kae (brother Joe's wife from Thailand) passed her written driver's test today. She was so excited she screamed, tore off the headphones at the testing center, and burst into tears. She had tried Monday, and failed, so she studied through the night two nights before taking it again today and passing.


Thai people have a gift for happiness. Kae is ecstatic at this victory. Only three months and she will be able to take her behind-the-wheel test. She should ace that, as she has driven on the crazy streets of big cities in Thailand.


"Five years, citizen!" she said, referring to her anticipation of becoming a naturalized US citizen. She had been doubting her intelligence, sadly, as she is so blazingly smart, but this gave her a boost. 


What got her going was anger at her husband, brother Joe. After she failed Monday, Joe said, well, in about six years Champoo can drive you around as she will have her license!


Whoa.


She got out of bed and went out to the living room to study that very moment, using her phone to translate English phrases into Thai.


Her determination is an inspiration.
