Today's message brought to you by the Holy Spirit

So the first couple of weeks of semester II have been stressful. That's an understatement. I don't have time for anything and I have to admit for the first time I feel like I would prefer to become a recluse. I'm really tired of people asking me to do things repeatedly after I tell them that I can't. I feel like I'm saying "I can't" more and more these days because of nursing school. It's depressing.

I haven't seriously thought about quitting but I have been questioning if I've been in the right place. This is incredibly intense and any sound person in this program has to also be asking themselves, "Am I in the right place." I just keep that thought tucked in the back of my mind and occasionally it pops out in times of super stress... so I think about it more right now than I realize.

I digress. The purpose of this post is to share the email I got today from my mother. It came out of the blue and this has only happened one other time in my life.... also from my mother. It gave me the chills when I considered the amount of stress that I'm under and helped me to kind of validate this intense amount of pressure and excuse the uncertainty.

Hey, Stephanie-- I have a friend who prays for me and my children and knows you're in nursing school at the U of A. She doesn't work here anymore, but she called me this morning because she said the Holy Spirit told her this message regarding YOU. She said He said "This is her time to step out in faith". She said "But wait, she has two daughters...which one is it?" She said He said, "Nursing".
That's you. I don't know what that means, but if you have a decision to make, this must be your answer. I love you!
So what do you think about that?
