Changes Ahead

Well I have made the decision to go back to school. I will be going back to be a RN, with the ultimate goal of working in an OBGYN office setting. I'm very excited to persue this and I know its going to be a long and challenging road, but I couldnt be happier about it! Im a bit nervous, as I havent been to school in over 5 years (yikes!), so I'm sure it will take some time to get used to school again, but I can't wait! Wahoo!

Wanting

I've discovered lately how much it hurts when you want something so much that you can't have. At least for me I know I eventually will have it. It doesnt take the hurt away for now though. Sometimes I feel like life is happening around me but I'm stuck in place. I have however had peace in knowing everything happens for a reason, and that through trials we learn and grow leaps and bounds. I also know that everything happens in Heavenly father's time, when he knows its best. And sometimes we just cant have what we want. For now while Im waiting, I think it would be nice to be a bear. Why a bear? Well....

"If you're a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that.
Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that, too.
If you're a bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute, cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that.
If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. I could deal with that, too.
If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat.Yup. I wanna be a bear."

Doesn't that sound great? =)
