say a little prayer

for my sanity

Any mother who has sons knows why, especially the mothers of teenage sons. I highly recommend those of you with young sons place them up for adoption around the time they turn 11, and then reconnect with them when they're about 22-24. No, really I love my boys with all my heart, but boy oh boy are they ever giving my husband and I a ton of stress lately! No time to get into it right now, though.

Thanks Mom for the jinx you put on me when I was being a bit of an unruly teenager!

Here's a prayer for us nursing students. I have no idea where I acquired it from, but just came across it in my "Keepers" file here on my PC. Enjoy!


Lord, I know we go through this every day but please give me the knowledge as to why I actually wanted to go to nursing school.
Lord, give me the strength to make it through those boring three hour lectures without falling asleep.
Lord, please give me the patience to make it through twelve hour clinicals with instructors that can't just give you the right answer and on the same note, give the nurses the ability to remember what it was like to be a student and give us just a little more respect.
Lord, give me the endurance to read all the assigned readings and be able to remember it when I am taking a test with four right answers.
Lord, give my family and friends the ability to realize I really am on the edge of insanity.
Finally, Lord, give me the vision to see that one day I will be a real nurse and I will never have to wear this ugly uniform again.

Now I must read the rest of my pharmacology and mental health chapters, and complete my pharm homework, all for tomorrow.
