Day 6 challenge and Day 2 challenge
Tuesday, September 06, 2016
These are taken from a 30 day challenge ONEKIDSMOM forwarded about 9/3.
Day 6: My favorite quote is from the Bible: I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength. That was one of the first scriptures I learned, and I really needed it. I need to know that what I cannot do in my own strength, I can do because I can give it to my Maker to get it done. I have seen miracles happen when I give things to Him Who knows all things.
Day 2 is my dream profession: really, I would have loved to be a doctor. My grandfather was a doctor and I adored him. As an adult, I have learned much more about his weaknesses and his humanness, but as a child, he was everything to me. He often saved me and my siblings from the craziness of an alcoholic environment that turned abusive. So that's what I wanted to do. Fate would see otherwise. I went back to college when my second child was 3 and soon became a single parent. We marry what is familiar to us. I finished grad school 6 years later and became gainfully employed. But being a single mom and needing an income did not allow for the rigors of pursuing additional very expensive education. My loans were finally paid when son #2 graduated from high school.
I am content with where I am, though I study health issues all the time. I have learned there really is no such thing as the "perfect" job because there are always trade offs even when the job seems to be just right. So, I have learned to be content in whatever situation I am in!
I'll try to get to Day 1 as soon as I can!
