I liked it. You spaced it well making it easy to read.
Your main character overcame so much. I liked the freedom and feeling of success going up the highway. Well done.
This was a well-written piece that drew me in right from the start. Your MC seems very real, I felt compassion for her.

VERY nice...Grrr is the sound of a straight-drive attempting to change gears. I'd forgotten. Brings to mind my first car and the same trials of learning to drive a straight-drive.
Love your characters.

Wonderfully well-written story! The dialog, the pacing of the story, everything worked. Super job!
I liked the creative take you took on this topic. I also liked the way you told the story - not too mushy, yet real enough that you could honestly feel the emotions of your MC. I especially liked the ending - it shows a lot about the faith of the MC and what helps to keep her going.
I could feel her frustration with the gear changes, I sometimes still have those moments when I'm not concentrating. What a great brother your MC has!
I enjoyed your entry. Well done.
