I was at the motor vehicles office the other day when I saw this kid smiling ear to ear. Come to find out he just passed his driver’s permit test. He was so excited, and his smile was ear to ear. He and his mother hugged. It was just such a joyful moment. So, I talked to Byron and his mother Cindy about why they were both excited. I also found out what a nice kid Byron is and why his mom is so proud of him. The single mom and her son reminded me of my mom and the day I got my license. It was pure joy tapping into that forgotten energy, remembering what it was like to finally get the freedom of driving. My mother passed from cancer and never saw me become successful in my industry. This moment really hit home for me. Dave Allgood – The Allgood News Email: AllgoodNews@KTUU.com
