Pooker on May 29th:
College — Nursing
"More news to share! I found out yesterday that I got into nursing school! This has been a desire for what feels like forever! It wouldn't leave my heart and is what I always came back to when trying to plan out what I thought God's desires were for my life. It's been a long path to this point, but I wouldn't trade it."
Then she posted this a few days later.
"Everything from WGU, every email, phone call, letter and text has been professional, welcoming and supportive and it's just the absolute best. You feel like a million bucks every time you sign on. I can't say enough good things. If you've been thinking about going back to school, let me know if you want info. Also, my sisters are amazing. This was there response to me putting their names down as "support contacts". Thanks, ladies!
Thanks to my friends who have been supportive and excited for me as well; and to those who made time, as I felt the constraints start to tighten as we closed in on this week. This is a big deal for me. I know I'm not the first to get into nursing. If you're annoyed with my excitement you can move along. I worked so hard to get here. This past week has just been so surreal. I forget that it's here and happening and that I'm actually a nursing student. Just keep doing your thing; even when you fall, get up and keep moving forward. I wouldn't change my path at all. The journey is me. Learn to use "missed successes" as connecting points with others. The struggles really do make us better.
Pray for me, pray for my patients, classmates, and staff I interact with on this journey. I haven't been this excited in a long time but I also have a lot to learn and a long way to go!"
Support her we do! We all know how much she has worked to get here and we all know she is going to give it her all. Good luck Pooker. We know you can do this!
