I am so Proud of myself!

Day Eight

A moment you felt the most satisfied with your life


May 14, 1983

This was a day that I was very satisfied with my life.
I had a wonderful man in my life.
I had two great kids: ages 8 and 12.
I just graduated nursing school
I was proud.
It was hard!
But I did it!

  1. Amazing! I would not have had the stamina, nor the focus to juggle so much at once. Kudos, girl, Kudos!

    1. Thank you. It was without a doubt the hardest 3 years of my life trying to juggle 3 jobs, two kids and all that school work

    1. For the first few years I loved it! It got tedious as I worked longer. Mostly with the younger girls who were working who thought they knew more than the rest of us. If you know what I mean?

  7. A nurse. I know that out here the qualifications to become a nurse are long and hard. With a family going at the same time, no wonder you felt satisfied.

  9. You SHOULD be proud! I was proud of myself for graduating college and it was only me. I can't imagine doing it with a husband and young children at home. I imagine that left a lasting effect on your kids and grandkids about setting and following through with goals. Such a huge accomplishment!

    1. The only impression that I think it left on my kids was that they never wanted me to go to school again. They rarely saw me in the 3 years it took me to finish!

  10. I have such fond memories of my hospital days, still probably my favorite jobs of all time. Think I was there about 6-7 years before leaving for more normal hours (or so I thought) in medical offices vs the hospital. Congrats on such a worthy accomplishment. All totaled I was in medicine in some capacity for just over 22 years. Love the photo! Do they still get a cap though at graduation even though one wears one to work? Been out of the field long enough now, I didn't know.

    1. I worked all of my nursing years either on the 11 p-7a shift or the 2-10p Hated day shift. Too much management to tell me how to do my job. No you don't get a cap any longer at graduation. Now you get a degree instead of a diploma If you want a cap you have to get your own. But hardly anyone wears them anymore. No one looks like a nurse in this day and age
