Today, I'm content...
yesterday (Saturday) I went to see my Grandmother, she is just absolutely adorable! She's 91 y/o and she's of sound mind, has the most perfect posture of anyone I've ever met, better posture than most teenagers these days..
She is still living at her house, relatively in good spirits most days and though she's lacking in a bit of vision and hearing, she's overall in great health!
I could only wish to be like her when I'm in my 9th decade of life. Not for one minute do I believe I'll actually live 9 decades, however, my maternal grandmother passed away at 90 y/o, if I wasn't a smoker and if I ate more veggies, I might have had a chance for such longevity...anyways, not a realistic vision though..
next stop, I came home, washed the smilin jeep to bring out its sparkling beauty, put the top down, thanked the Lord for such wonderful gifts in my life and drove off to my friend's house to help her study for her RRT clinical sims exam. I took that test not too long ago, in fact it was only 3 weeks ago, and I must say, it was a brutal exam. Being an ADD'er, I have to prepare months in advance for exams of this nature. I take it seriously since the exams cost money, they're not cheap, and I don't want to spend more than I have to on it. I grabbed all the books I used in school to assist in my success and I went to studying last year in November...needless to say, I passed, barely, but I passed nonetheless! I'm so greatful. If ever you need guidance for educational assistance from the Lord, seek out Proverbs 8 & 9. I'm especially fond of those Chapters because it speaks about education and there are a few passages about women & education! I read Proverbs 8 & 9 before my written exam and before my clinical exam. I like to think that God had been sitting in my lap during the exam maneuvering the mouse and picking the correct answers in times of my unsurety! I remember leaving the written exam thinking, "Wow, God does exist, he's computer literate, and he can operate a mouse via the use of my very hands!" I must admit, covered in "goosebumps" I cried at the very thought, because I passed and I wasn't sure how I did that!
When I needed him most, he's always been there for me, and for that I'm eternally in debted!
"focus Katie!" anyways, back to my friend, she has taken and passed the written exam, she has taken the clinical sims twice, this will be her 3rd time to take this test!
I'm at a loss! it was very hard for me, but I don't comprehend like "normal" people!
She can recite to you backward and forward all this info...but for whatever reason, she's struggling..
so, I studied with her last week, and again last night, but last night, I showed her Proverbs and I wrote down the chapters, I'm hoping that the things we went over and the biblical references, maybe, hopefully this time she'll pass...because everytime you take a portion of these exams, you pay cold hard cash!!
so, Grandma, I love you very much, I think of you and pray for you often.
CS, I wish you the best of luck on your exam, I hope and pray that you pass and you never have to take it again!!
To NBRC, Thanks for getting rich quick, your exams are hard, but if I have to study years in advance, I will not pay you twice for an exam!!! ( I know, I know, famous last words Katie!)
Good night all, thanks for reading this horribly long blog, Bless you all and sleep well!
