Years ago, my sister left a stressful marriage (putting it mildly) and set off on her own to make her way in life. After so many years as a stay at home mom, this meant that she needed to go back to school in order to some day be able to provide for her kids and live the life she wanted to live. So she went to nursing school. (I just now involuntarily cringed at the thought of going back to school at this stage of life.)
I can’t even begin to tell you about her struggles because I don’t know them all. But I do know that she worked very hard to accomplish an incredible feat. I couldn’t be more proud of her. She’s such a great example to me of grace under pressure. Proof that you can do anything that you set your mind to. She’s simply amazing!
