Writer's Block: If I had a hammer

As a child, did you feel like you were you expected to pursue a certain type of career? How did this make you feel? Did you wind up choosing a different profession or path?

I never felt there were career expectations, but I felt strong support from my parents.
When I had a conflict in scheduling, my parents sat in and recorded a nursing review class several weeks in a row for me. I passed largely in part because they stood in the gap on my behalf.

Many of our greatest successes in life have come as a result of others who have linked arms with us and walked by our side. We need never to forget that fact.

Now that I'm a parent I can see so much better and appreciate so much more the sacrifices they made!

Thank you for 'linking arms with me" in prayer for my friend and her husband. She learned that he will go to rehab tomorrow. Also, his daughter got him to drink a frappe today. Some doctor (not his own specialist) had told him there was 'no cure' for his kind of cancer!! He had given up and was not eating! When she learned this, she reminded him that his specialist HAS a treatment, but he must build up his strength before it can start! Hopefully he is now turning a corner!

Wow! I'm so happy to hear he'll be going to rehab tomorrow and that he drank a frappe today! What a testimony to the power of joining together in prayer!!
