I Always Wanted To Be Nurse
I was told I didn't have the math skills, but medicine and health have been big interests for me, and they still are.
I have been taking care of my Tim and doling out his meds everyday, and teaching the girls what to do as well. They are very good about caring for others. I encourage him in his therapy and make sure he has his coffee just the way he likes it. It is a pleasure and a joy to do this for him.
I find that God has granted my desire when He made me a wife and mother. Little did I realize that in that gift, I would use all the areas of interest that He placed in me.
I love to care for my family. I nurse boo boos, research the best way to deal with poison ivy or bug bites, I take care of minor burns and tummy aches. I know how to deal with bee stings, or when to call the doctor about a fever. I do not turn green at blood or at broken bones, or staples, used in place of stitches...
I thank God for allowing me to function in the interests that I have, and the blessing of using them to care for my family!
