This morning I woke up thinking "what should I blog about today?" Should I blog about my gorgeous sisters who just got back from the bahamas and all of the wonderful gifts they bought me? Should I blog about food, because it's always on my mind? Should I blog about the knew Tibi collection? So many endless ideas, but still, I was at a loss about what I should post today. I argued not posting and studying for my huge test on Monday. Does it matter if I post everyday anyways?
School has been difficult the past few months and many times I question my ability to graduate nursing school. I have always made good grades, but NS is a completely different ball game. I know I'm an extremely sensitive person, why am I chasing after a career that could possibly bring me heartache after heartache?
As I soon as I logged onto blogger I was reminded of why I want to be a nurse so badly. A while back Sam blogged about her friend Sarah. I followed the link to her blog and immediately I was humbled by Sarah's love for life. Sadly, Sarah passed away yesterday. I have never met her and I have only been following her blog for a short while, but I am speechless and saddened. Never in a million years would I have thought that I could be touched so deeply by someone I have never met.
Today I want to blog about Sarah.
Sarah and her loved ones are in my prayers. If you'd like to send encouraging words to Sarah's family, you can do so here:
I am going to go study for my exam. I know that the odds to finding a cure for cancer are slim, but I want to be the nurse that is there encouraging patients and their loved ones to never give up.
Thank you Sarah for reminding me why I want to be a nurse.
