It's taken a long time to get here. To this place where I can say that I'm starting my final semester of school (for now). To say that this is the one that matters. It's been a long time coming, and the road hasn't always been easy but I have to say that in a way I've really loved every minute of it.
This semester I know I will be challenged, AGAIN, in ways I can't see coming. I will stretch the limits of my brain, the amount of sleep, the stress, and the fun and joy of this journey. I will spend time with women that I call friends, women I couldn't even fathom having like them in my life. Without them I wouldn't be here either.
My family has given so much, sacrificed so much and been there when I need them. They will not really ever know how much I am thankful for that. My husband has been especially important and he's put his things on hold just so that I (we) could do this too. He's a pretty amazing person, my best friend and the one person I know I can't live without. I love you hon!
I hope that I can be the kind of nurse that I would want to work with, the kind I would want as a patient and the kind that continues to learn and grow and never becomes jaded. I hope that I have a job I love (or at least like) and it happens soon LOL!
I am ready, I've been building to this for so long. I had no idea that this is what it would feel like. I can do this, I can be this, I am MEANT to be this. BRING IT ON!
